Mexican Wedding Cakes ( AKA Russian Tea Cakes)


This year I made over 300 Mexican Wedding cakes. They are really quite easy for such a tasty little cookie. This recipe omits nuts, but finely chopped pecans or walnuts are delicious additions.

I highly recommend rolling the cookies in powdered sugar twice--once right out of the oven and again after they are cooled. You can also roll the cookies in cinnamon sugar. If you chose to coat the cookies this way roll them in the cinnamon sugar before you put them in the oven and then do it again right out of the oven.

Enjoy!

By request, I am making more of these for Christmas day. I like them without the nuts, but the nutsos in my family want walnuts, so I think I am making some of each.

These cookies are my FAVORITES. I'm going to have to try making them one of these days.
