These cookies were simple to make, and would be simple enough for a child to make (w/ adult supervision). Commonly known as Russian Tea Cakes, they are also referred to as Mexican Wedding cookies. I made the batch twice -once following the recipe, the second making some subtle changes. Here are the changes I made. I swapped the regular sugar out and replaced w/ 10x confectioner sugar -this produced a smoother texture. I left out the water, and added 1/4 tsp of salt. I reduced the amount of nuts to 3/4 cup and replaced the almonds with pecans.
I also added 1 TBSP of vanilla caramel powdered dairy creamer to the powdered sugar, when I rolled the cookies in it...and WOW is all I can say!
The first batch was good (a 3.5 star rating) but I enjoyed the second batch better thus the five star rating
