Rachel’s Mexican Wedding Cookies

As promised, here is the recipe for those delicious looking powdered cookies in the picture below! Thanks Rachel!

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
21/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup finely chopped nuts (either pecans or walnuts)
Powdered sugar

Heat oven to 400. Mix butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar and the vanilla. Mix in flour, salt, and nuts until dough holds together (it will be crumbly, but when you form the cookies it should mold together.)

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake until set, but not brown, 10 to 12 minutes.

Roll in powdered sugar while warm; cool. Roll in powdered sugar again (I don’t usually roll them again, it’s up to you.) It says it makes about 4 dozen cookies, but it doesn’t make that many. Enjoy!
