Mexican Wedding Cakes Recipe

Thursday, February 17, 2011

Sooo Yummy! This is the recipe my mom has used for years! I made them just last week and they were perfect!

1 cup butter
2 tsp. water
2 tsp. vanilla
1/3 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1 cup chopped nuts

Mix all ingredients together. Refrigerate for 4 hours. Roll into small balls and drop on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes. Cool. Roll in powdered sugar.

Super easy and super good!

  8. I love these cookies, my Mom used to make these when I was little. Makes me want to make a batch just for the memories. Thanks!

  9. I am happy you gave us the recipe as it sounds so good and your cookies look yummy. I am wondering if they are like my mom's Sand Tarts.

  10. Wow, they sound and look exactly like the Russian Tea Cakes I make!! They are one of my favorite things (and the quickest thing) to whip up for the holidays. I would love it if you'd link this up to my Marvelous Mess party. I will be choosing one project to be featured on my sidebar for a week!! Here is the link:

  11. Lots of memories here. 36 years ago I made dozens of these for my wedding reception. I piped a pink flower on top of each one. They are still one of my favorite cookies.

  12. My mom always made these cookies too, they're so good! I love that they're not "too" sweet. Thanks for posting, I think I'll make a batch soon :)

  13. I love Mexican Wedding Cookies. My husband loves them because they're not as sweet as other cookies. So I will have to make these for him!

    Also, I have a great Dove chocolate giveaway going on right now and would love if stopped by and entered:
