Pecans that are held together by butter, flour and sugar. How much better can it get? The second you put one of these Mexican Wedding Cookies in your mouth it cracks, crumbles and melts with an amazing pecan taste.
You can find a version of these cookies in almost any culture. I have heard them called Polvorones or Mexican Wedding Cakes and my Gramma called these Butter Balls.
Whatever name you care to call them, they will always be delicious.
My family enjoys seeing who can get the messiest from the powdered sugar, but it is possible to eat these without becoming covered. No cookie tray is complete without these wonderful cookies.
Handle this dough with a light hand and don’t overmix to avoid dry, tough cookies.
