Nutty, slightly sweet and absolutely delicious Mexican wedding cookies. They are great to give as edible gifts for the holidays.
I am always looking for new baking recipes and bake-a-thon definitely helps me with that aspect. There are a ton of baked treats that I bookmarked to try and I keep looking for occasions to bake them. I signed up to bring cookies for this year’s thanksgiving and I made 2 different cookies. First up of the two are these easy to make and melt in your mouth Mexican wedding cookies aka Russian Tea Cakes.I have a Mexican wedding cookie recipe on the blog that I posted years ago. Recipe is from King Arthur Flour. Today’s recipe is similar but uses almond flour instead of toasted and chopped walnuts. I am all for recipes that don’t need any extra steps. So I used store bought almond flour to make these cookies.
The best part of these cookies are that they are not too sweet – perfect to serve after a full meal. Also great to serve as a nice tea time snack. There is not much sugar in the cookie recipe itself, but the baked cookies are dunked it confectioners sugar to add sweetness.These Mexican wedding cookies are buttery and melt in the mouth. They are very easy to make too. Mix all the ingredients into a nice pliable dough, make balls and bake!! Easy, peasy. No chilling, no rolling, nothing complicated at all. Once the cookies come out of the oven, they are rolled in confectioners sugar until they look snowy and delicious. These cookies keep well for up to a week when stored in an airtight container.
