Genevieve’s Traditional Christmas Mexican Wedding Cookies Recipe
Genevieve makes these cookies every holiday for as long as she can remember. Her recipe is slightly different than most; she uses more salt and a lot more nuts.
- 8 oz butter, soft
- 2.2 oz powdered sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 6 oz ground pecans
- 1 tsp salt
- 8 oz AP flour
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In mixing bowl, use creaming method to mix butter and powdered sugar together until fluffy. Mix in vanilla extract and ground pecans. In a small bowl, whisk together flour and salt. Mix flour mixture carefully. Do not overmix. Roll into balls and chill on cookie sheet.
Place cookie sheet in oven for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown. Let cookies cool, and enjoy!
- For a denser cookie (like Chef Ori likes), cream the butter for a minute. For a lighter, aerier version (like Genevieve prefers), cream the butter for 4-5 minutes
- These cookies are not too sweet. They are perfect to eat with a tea or coffee in the afternoon, or for breakfast when Ori likes to have them
Happy Holidays! xoxo
