Made these many times for my holiday cookie tray and they are always well received.

I'm rating a 3 for now as I have not used this recipe yet. I lost my recipe for Mexican Wedding Cookies and have been looking for a replacement. This is the closest, minus the addition of Nutmeg...

The nutmeg was very overpowering. I even removed them from the oven two minutes early, and they were still overdone.

Always love these for christmas!

Fantastic recipe! Made them for our family Christmas and everybody raved about them!
