Mexican Wedding Cookies
Mexican Wedding Cookies are a classic Christmas cookie recipe made with finely chopped pecans and tossed in powdered sugar to make them look like delicious snowballs!
- 2 cups All Purpose Flour
- 1 cup Pecans finely chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt
- 1 cup Butter unsalted, room temperature
- 1 cup Powdered Sugar divided
- 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
In a small bowl combine flour, pecans, and salt.
In the bowl of your mixer combine butter and 1/2 cup of powdered sugar, creaming them together on low speed until smooth.
Continue mixing the dough as you add the vanilla.
Add the flour mixture to the butter and sugar ½ cup at a time continuing to mix until fully incorporated.
Form the cookie dough into balls using about 1 tablespoon of dough for each.
Place them on a lined baking sheet at least 1 inch apart.
Bake in 325 degree F oven for 18-20 minutes. The cookie should be pale but the bottom should be beginning to brown.
Move cookies to a cooling rack and let them cool completely before gently tossing each one in the remaining 1/2 cup of powdered sugar to coat it completely.
