A few weeks ago I asked our Facebook community to help me out with some blog posts. I wanted to do a 12 Days of Christmas Cookies Around the World series her on our blog. The response was amazing! So, I took all of the suggestions and found the most popular cookies from around the world that you, our community, love to bake at Christmastime. First up we have Mexican wedding cookies.
Mexican Wedding Cookies are commonly served at Christmastime. However, these nutty, buttery cookies can be enjoyed at any time of the year.
I’ve eaten plenty of Mexican wedding cookies, but I’ve never actually made them myself. They were so easy and they turned out so perfectly. They’re a gently sweet, pecan-filled shortbread cookie, perfectly rounded in shape, and covered in powdered sugar.
I made mine smaller than normal. You know how it goes when you bite into something covered in powdered sugar. You bite it and powdered sugar ends up all over the front of your shirt. So I made mine smaller so I could pop the whole thing into my mouth and avoid a powdered sugar mess.
