This was a good recipe for one of my favorites. Picture a pop in your mouth cookie with the texture of a powdered lemon cookie. The trick to not getting a bland, dry cookie is the cookie to sugar coating ratio when you roll them in the powdered sugar. The cookie should be a small ball, slightly larger than the size of a small marble, cooked through but not browned so the flavor is mild. Then while they are a little warm still you coat them in the powdered sugar. After they are cool you coat them one more time. This creats a wonderful smooth coating that melts in your mouth right before the inside crunch from the cookie.
Thanks Lana for the recipe!
After 20 minutes they were too brown. Cook only 15 minutes.
I have been looking for this recipe for years. The only time I have ever had these they were store bought, but I loved them. These are great and easy...
Hard and tasteless. I've had Mexican Wedding cookies several different ways, but never this bad.
absolutely delicious. even substituting the pecans for walnuts worked.
Wonderful cookies. Very few ingredients and fast to make. Tried them as a "plan B" do to the failure of another dessert I was making for a Mexican potluck. With time running out I found this recipe and still made it to the party on time! Real keeper and a big hit at the potluck. UPDATE: 12/22, Six months, can't believe there hasn't been more kudos posted to this recipe!! Made it again tonight to give as gifts tomorrow. This is one fast and bullet proof cookie to make. It's easy, looks great, and tastes wonderful!
These were AWESOME. Not too sweet, but nutty and buttery. I've tried other recipes, but these were by far the best I've ever made. I made one change and that was to cook only 20 minutes. They were perfect!
These are wonderful. I read some reviews and I also only cooked for 15 - 20 minutes. I used half butter shortening and half butter and rolled them in the sugar after cooling for a few minutes and then again when completely cooled. My son and husband loved these also! It's a keeper for us!
