Yesterday was my daughters Holiday Cookie exchange.

Even though most of her guests didn’t make it we had a really nice assortment of goodies.

Cookies

I made my Cherry Chocolate Kisses cookies, Sugar Cookies for the kids to decorate, Mexican Wedding Cookies and Chocolate dipped Marshmallows.
Mexican Wedding Cookies are really easy to make, only include 5 ingredients and taste wonderful. They are my husbands favorite and since he has been feeling under the weather lately at the last minute I decided to make them also.

Yield: 48 cookies

Mexican Wedding Cookies and a Cookie Exchange

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar, divided
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 2 cups of all-purpose unbleached flour
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Beat the butter and 1/2 cup of the powdered sugar in your kitchen-aid mixer until light and fluffy about 5 minutes. If you don’t have a stand mixer use a hand held mixer.
  3. Add vanilla and beat until vanilla is completely incorporated.
  4. Slowly begin to add the flour 1 cup at a time.
  5. Mix with your mixer until the dough becomes too much for your mixer.
  6. I mixed about 1 1/2 cup of flour and then added the last of the flour and the finely chopped pecans, mixing by hand with a wooden spoon.
  7. Mix until the pecans are evenly distributed through out the dough.
  8. Shape the dough into one inch balls and leave about 2 inches between cookies.
  9. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes until slightly browned.
  10. Cool for 5 minutes and roll the warm cookies in a bowl of the remaining 1/2 cup of powdered sugar.
  11. Move cookies to a rack and cool completely. Store in single layers in an air tight container.
