A month or so ago, we were invited to dinner at someone's house. Finally last week I took them a thank-you- chips and homemade salsa and a Mud Pie spoon. The other day, Barb, returned my bowl (it was not to be returned) filled with Mexican Wedding Cookies! We keep thanking back and forth. Now I have to think of something to put back in the bowl to thank her!!!!
I had forgotten how much I like these cookies!
1 cup of softened butter
1/2 cup of powdered sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
2 cups of flour
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1/4-1/2 cup extra powdered sugar for rolling cookies
Directions: (Preheat oven to 350 degrees)
Cream butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, vanilla together until fluffy. Add the flour slowly and when all combined add the finely chopped pecans. Roll the dough into walnut-sized balls and bake for 12-14 minutes until the bottoms are lightly golden brown. Cool on a rack for several minutes and then roll the cooked cookies into the extra 1/4-1/2 cup powdered sugar.
