Try these Mexican Wedding cookies – so whimsically romantic, with all the powdered sugar coating.
By Jehanne Ali
I love traditional cookies like this, as it also greatly reminds me of my favourite Suji cookies. Both are great for holiday gifts idea, door gifts for weddings, or just to be cherished with the afternoon cuppa.
Browning the butter brings out nutty flavour which complements well with the ground pecans in the cookies. Browned butter is a pot of molten gold, I tell you, just remember to strain it after cooling, and you get silky smooth gold perfect for baking.
Those delicious cookies were a big hit in our house, the ‘older’ cookie monster sneaked out of bed in the middle of the night to have a bite, then another, so a batch of cookies was gone in 3 days! I was then summoned to make another batch for the cookie monster to enjoy whilst driving to work!
I know your holiday season is over, and the diet has begun. But do consider these for the indulgence that you so deserve..straight to the cookies…Print
