Mexican Wedding Cookies
In honor of National Cook Day, I want to share my sister’s favorite Christmas cookie recipe with you. Alicia’s favorite cookies are Mexican Wedding cookies, granted they aren’t technically Christmas cookies but we make them every year during December. A most have for her during the holidays, who can blame her they are amazing.
The cookies that are served at most weddings and celebrations are known in Mexico as biscochitos. The basic ingredients are nearly identical to Russian teacakes or shortbread: ground nuts, flour, butter, sugar. In Mexico they are rolled into balls or formed into crescent shapes and covered with confectioner’s sugar.
