"On the second day of Christmas"
I am giving you a recipe for:
Mexican Wedding Cake
Now I don't know if this is truly served as wedding cake in Mexico~ does anyone know if it is?~ but it is such a delicious cookie, it could certainly be served at a wedding. It even looks the part, covered in powdered sugar! And they fit in nicely as a Christmas cookie, too. I found this recipe years ago on the back of the C & H powdered sugar bag, and they've been a favorite of my husband's ever since. This one is definitely worth a try!
1 cup butter (2 sticks), softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 cups nuts, finely chopped
additional powdered sugar~ about 1 and 1/2 cups
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
With electric mixer, beat butter and powdered sugar. Add vanilla.
Combine flour, salt and nuts; stir into sugar mixture. Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 15 minutes until lightly browned.
While hot, roll in powdered sugar.
Cool on a rack, then roll again in powdered sugar to coat.
Makes about 5 dozen.
Well, I am still trying to decide whether or not to do a one time "linky" party for homemade goodies this week. It seems like a Christmas kind of thing to do! And again, if this is something you'd be interested in, please let me know! I will let you know in a couple of days if it's a go! :)
I sure hope your weekend was wonderful! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!
