Mexican Wedding Cookies


1 cup butter, softened

½ cup powdered sugar

1 tsp vanilla

2 ¼ cups sifted flour

½ tsp salt

¾ cup chopped walnuts

Powdered sugar for rolling baked cookies in


Cream together butter and powdered sugar until light and fluffy, then stir in the vanilla.

In a separate bowl, whisk together flour and salt, gradually add this mixture in to the butter mixture (dry into wet ingredients). Stir in copped nuts.

If possible, chill dough for 5 minutes in freezer.

Form dough into 1 ¼ inch balls, and placed on parchment lined or ungreased cooking sheets.

Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes, or until they turn light brown. While cookies are warm but not HOT, rolls them in powdered sugar, and cool on wire racks.

Makes about 48 cookies.
