Delicious cookies I made for Cinco de Mayo!
I’ve made these cookies once before whenever we had a fiesta themed party for Alex’s birthday and they were a huge hit. Seriously, I’m all about feeding people and stuff but these were so good I hid some for myself so that I wouldn’t have to share. They’re buttery, nutty and delicious. You would think that the excessive amount of powdered sugar would make them ultra sweet, but it really doesn’t, it just adds the lightest hint of sweetness.

    Once cooked they will still look a little anemic, but that’s ok. You don’t want them too browned because the second they start to go golden they’re basically a stop away from burned.

    Allow them to cool and then toss them in your powdered sugar. This is a totally optional step, but if you want to give it the authentic look that people are expecting whenever they read ‘Mexican Wedding Cakes’ then this step is a must.
