Mexican wedding cookies go by various names, including "Mexican wedding cakes." Whatever the name, you know the cookie: soft, tender, nutty, and coated in powdered sugar. It's a crowd-pleaser that can be made with any type of nut. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Saura Madani.

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 2 cups powdered sugar (for coating)

    Very crumbly, had to add about a cup of milk. After that i turned out great.

    These are one of my favorite cookies! I did add one more step... I roasted my peacans for 8 min in the oven before I started. It makes a big difference in the taste of pecans for any recipe.

    They turned out great! I tweaked the timing a bit because I like super soft cookies/almost dough-like, so I cooked for 18 min. instead of 30.

    I live in Minnesota and this cookie is our state cookie. I can't begin to tell you how many times I've made this recipe in 54 years of marriage. It one of our favorites and always a winner! Made me smile when I saw the recipe!!

    delicious, so addictive! definitely need to chill for a bit longer than the recipe suggests, a few cookies had butter leaking out everywhere.
