Very simple cookie which is incredibly delicious and impossible to leave alone
Mexican Wedding Cookies are traditionally given as wedding favours. It’s also be called as Snowball cookies or Russian Tea Cookies. The names may be different but the cookie is basically the same. Mexican wedding cookies can also vary by the type of nuts that are used. I use almonds, but walnuts and pecans can be substituted. The nuts give the cookie a great texture and flavor. Because of the powdered sugar this cookie basically melts in your mouth. It’s a soft, tender cookie. These cookies traditionally are made with finely chopped pecans. But I like to chop the almonds really finely so that the dough inside is smooth. You can keep the almonds in bigger chunks if you’d like. As far as ingredients, wedding cookies usually consist of ground nuts, flour, butter, sugar.
I like to store these cookies at room temperature in an airtight container. They can be frozen, but you may need to reroll the cookies in powdered sugar before serving as sometimes the powdered sugar “melts” into the cookie.This recipe is fairly easy to make and a great one for kids to try with your supervision. They will have a ball rolling them in the powdered sugar and then popping them in their mouths.:) .
Similarly You can also try Hazelnut Tea Cookies which is also very similar with just the variation of Hazelnut in place of Almonds. Also you can try Whole Wheat Cookies, Raagi Cookies, Pearl Millet Cookies.
