Mexican Wedding Cookies with Cookbook Author Katie Lee

When it comes to sweets, we are tough critics. Fortunately, our culinary friends rarely disappoint and we’ve got a decadent treat to sweeten your week. Katie Lee takes us behind her burner and shares a recipe from her new cookbook The Comfort Table: Recipes for Everyday Occasions. Forget waiting for the next nuptials or bridal shower to make these cookies, this easy-to-prepare recipe turns any occasion into a special one. Tip: Shortbread cookies keep longer so these make great gifts Tip: Dough shouldn’t be too sweet because you’ll add sugar later Tip: Save butter wrappers and use them to grease your cookie sheet Trick: You can easily substitute pecans for other nuts in this recipe Trick: Keep nuts in the freezer for future use in recipes or as a quick snack Trick: Don’t have time to chill for an hour? Pop dough in the freezer for 20 min Trick: Save time by making the dough the night before and storing in the fridge Trick: Avoid a mess by putting a cookie sheet under the cooling rack Technique: Always use unsalted butter when baking Technique: Let butter come to room temperature so it will be soft and easy to mix Technique: Pinch off about a tablespoon of dough and roll it into a ball Technique: Cookies don’t spread much when baking so okay to place them close together Technique: Dip cookies in powdered sugar while they’re still warm for a nice coating

    They’re delicious fresh from the oven and the sugar really gives the cookies a smooth, sweet flavor.
