  1. Please take some time to poke around and visit some of the other links.

Mexican Wedding Cakes or Snowball Cookies

Mexican Wedding Cakes

or Snowball Cookies

A Recipe for
The Ultimate Virtual Cookie & Goodies Party & Giveaway
#Ultimatecookieparty

I am Co-hosting the virtual Cookie & Goodies Exchange party with several of my blogger buddies, I hope you will pop by for a visit and exchange a few recipes with us.

This cookie recipe has been a forever family favorite in my house. Delicious barely describes these melt-in-your-mouth wonders, and the recipe is super easy too! We have always called them Mexican Wedding Cakes, but some people call them Snowball Cookies. Because these cookies do look like little snowballs, they make a perfect holiday cookie.

The recipe has six ingredients: Butter, Powdered Sugar, Vanilla, Flour, Salt, and Nuts.

You bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes, then roll the cookies in powdered sugar.

Easy right? So, onto the Directions and Recipe.

Mexican Wedding Cakes

Slightly soften the butter. Add powdered sugar and vanilla, and whisk until smooth and creamy. Add flour, salt, and finely chopped nuts (I used walnuts, but have also used pecans). Mix well.

The dough is soft and crumbly. It seems like it’s on the dry side, but it’s not. It will stick together easily. Roll the mixed dough into small balls, and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake until lightly golden  and let cool for 1-2 minutes. Drop into powdered sugar and roll around to cover the cookie. Place cookie on wax paper. Once the entire sheet of cookies has been dusted with powdered sugar, dunk them through the powdered sugar a second time. Return to wax paper to finish cooling.

Don’t these look scrumptious?

Cook time

A scrumptious cookie recipe that is good all year round, but particularly lends itself to the winter holidays since the cookie looks like a tiny snowball.
from:
Type: Dessert
Serves: 3-6 dozen
Ingredients:
  • 1 Cup Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1-3/4 Cup Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Nuts (finely chopped walnuts or pecans)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • Additional Powdered Sugar for rolling after baking.
Directions:
  1. Use slighty softened Butter. Add Powdered Sugar and Vanilla
  2. Whisk until smooth and creamy
  3. Add Flour, Salt, and Nuts, mix until well blended
  4. Roll Dough between the palms of your hands to make small balls
  5. Place Dough Balls on UNGREASED cookie sheet
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes, until lightly golden
  7. Let cookies cool on sheet for 1-2 minutes
  8. Drop individual cookies into the additional Powdered Sugar and roll around to coat.
  9. Place cookie onto Wax Paper
  10. When all cookies from the baking sheet are coated, go back and coat a second time with Powdered Sugar
Notes
This recipe yields 3-6 dozen cookies depending on how large or small you roll you dough balls.

I bake my cookies for 10 minutes to start and add a minute at a time if needed.
