Mexican Wedding Cookies

Mexican Wedding Cookies...AKA Danish Wedding Cookies, Russian Tea Cakes, Italian Wedding Cookies, Butterballs, or Snowballs. These little guys are soft pecan shortbread cookies that are rolled in powdered sugar. And they are delicious. And addicting. I found this recipe through Tastespotting on a blog called Eat Yet. If you love pecan shortbread cookies, then you’re gonna love these guys. I don’t even love pecan shortbread cookies and I love these guys. They are equally as good without being rolled in the powdered sugar too. I’ll definitely be making them again.
I made them for my friend Katie, who designed my whole blog. Did you know that web design is super hard? I did not know this until I created this blog. My version looked like crap. It would have hurt your eyes. Anyway, I’m super thankful that Katie helped me set all of this up so I could start putting my recipes on here! Her only request was Mexican Wedding Cookies, so here they are. I hope you love them Katie! :)

Reasons you should make this:

  3. It only takes 30 minutes from the time you prepare it to the time you serve it.
  4. It smells like Rotel dip while you're cooking it.
