Mexican Wedding Cookies


I love simple recipes and these cookies are as simple as can be; you take five ingredients and turn them into something delicious.  The first time I made them they went so fast that I had to make another batch the next day!  These would make a great addition to your holiday baking...or anytime of year.

When I baked my cookies I used my new Heirloom Cookie Sheet.  These sheets are 100% solid stainless steel, the cookies bake evenly, they brown without burning, they're dishwasher safe, Made in the USA and backed with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.   Anyone need to order some Christmas gifts?  After the recipe will be a special promo code for you to use if you'd like to order some!

Ingredients are as follows:

1 cup butter, softened 
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 C powdered sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
2 C all-purpose flour

powdered sugar (to roll the cookies in)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Whip the butter and vanilla together.

Gradually mix in the powdered sugar; mix in the salt and flour.

Pinch off small pieces of dough; place on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 11-13 minutes; slightly brown around the edges.

Immediately remove from cookie sheet and cool on a wire rack.

Before serving, roll in powdered sugar.

Take a bite and enjoy!

I've used many cookie sheets over the years and I must say these are truly one of the best.  They are very sturdy, not to mention pretty, and I love how simple they were to clean.  I literally wiped a damp cloth over it and it was like new.  So if you'd like to try them out for yourself, Heirloom is offering my readers 10% off 2 or more sheets (limit 10) and will be valid thru the month of November.  All you have to do is use promo code: FMWLNOV13

Please note that I was not compensated to do this post, however I was provided with the recipe and an Heirloom Cookie Sheet; the opinions expressed are my own.


  1. think i may try these to send my husband whos deployed for his Christmas care package !

    1. What a thoughtful thing to do...tell him I said Thank-you for his service.

  2. I make cookies similar to these, except mine have finely chopped pecans in them. They are one of my favorite Christmas cookies!! Also I roll them in the powdered sugar as soon as they come out of the oven and again after they are completely cool...

    1. without the pecans, they are just globs of dough!! lol

  3. I make those with pecans too. We call them "snowballs".

  4. All the bakers in my family have been making these cookies for years, also with the chopped pecans. I make them both ways - love them! To me, they're basically shortbread. Thanks for posting this timeless classic recipe.

  5. This may sound silly you use salted or unsalted butter? :-)

    1. The recipe calls for unsalted, however you can use salted; you would just omit the salt in the recipe then ;)

  6. Nuts are essential when I bake them. Sent several dozen as Christmas gifts this year!

  7. any kind of nuts, coconut, dried cranberries.... any of these can be added...
    even a chocolate chip hidden in the middle.
    I've made these for over 40 years and ALWAYS delicious!
    I've even had friends say their gift of a dozen never made it home ...all eaten in the car !
    Very delicious!

  8. I know the recipe calls for all-purpose flour. Could I substitute that with self-rising? I know to omit salt

    1. I've never tried it, but I think it will work just fine.

  9. me pueden decir si el azucar y la harina son tazas

  10. no entiendo que significa la C
