They’re very light and buttery. They crumble as soon as you bite them. Some have jelly sandwiched between them, some are dipped in chocolate and sprinkles, and some have a cherry on top, etc.

Mexican Wedding Cookies

1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
½ cup confectioners’ sugar, plus more for coating baked cookies
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting hands
1 cup pecans, chopped into very small pieces

Preheat the oven to 275ºF. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Using an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar at low speed until smooth. Beat in the vanilla. At low speed gradually add the flour. Mix in the pecans with a spatula. With floured hands, take out about 1 tablespoon of dough and shape into a crescent. Continue to dust hands with flour as you make more cookies. Place onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 40 minutes. When cool enough to handle but still warm, roll in additional confectioners’ sugar. Cool on wire racks.

I have a link to the picture:

http://noigiftsandgourmet.com/cookies_lewis/images/d_easter/lg/smalleggs.jpg

I want to make these types of cookies, the frosting, the shape. All of that.
Also, how could I make sure they stay fresh if I’m shipping them across the country?
Thank you!

Answer by Lisa
They are simple sugar cookies it looks like.

If you want a very firm icing you can use a “Royal Icing”.
3 large egg whites
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 (16 ounce) package powdered sugar, sifted
paste food coloring

Directions
1 Combine egg whites and cream of tartar in a large mixing bowl.
2 Beat at medium speed on mixer until frothy.
3 Add half of powdered sugar, mixing well.
4 Add remaining sugar and beat 5-7 minutes at high speed, until mixture is stiff and holds a peak.
5 Color with desired amount of paste food coloring.
6 NOTE: Icing dries very quickly; keep icing covered with a damp cloth when not using.

You can use bottles from the paint section in a craft store to get a fine tip and decorate with them…

Other option… used canned white frosting…tint you as desire.

Frost base of cookies. Thin the frosting in the microwave until the thickness you want…decorate with them.

Either way, leave the cookies sit out overnight to fully dry.

Be sure to layer waxed paper between cookies to ship them. Seal them in airtight baggies and pack well with popped popcorn as cushioning.
