    Mexican Wedding Cookies
    Ingredients

    * 1 pound soft unsalted butter
    * 1 cup powdered sugar
    * 2 tablespoons vanilla
    * 1 teaspoon salt
    * 2 cups finely chopped pecans
    * 5 cups sifted pastry flour
    * Powdered sugar for dusting

    Directions

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat butter and powdered sugar in mixer until light and fluffy, about 1015 minutes. Add vanilla, salt and pecans. Remove from mixer and stir in pastry flour by hand being careful not to overmix. Form into football shapes about the size of small walnuts and place on a buttered cookie sheet. Bake 1012 minutes or until just beginning to get the slightest bit colored on the bottom. Remove upon the first sign of color and set on a rack to cool. When cool enough to touch place in a bowl with powdered sugar on top and bottom and toss gently. Occasionally toss with sugar while cooling, trying to get as much sugar as possible to stick. When cold, place cookies in airtight container and cover until ready to serve.

    I learned about them as “Russian” wedding cookies or Russian Teacakes, but they’re the same basic thing:

    Personally I like the nuts in mine to be walnuts, but other nuts can work too.

    They’re also pretty simple to make. Here are some recipes:

    These cookies, chock-full of finely chopped nuts, are so delectable that many countries claim their own variation.

    In the Mexican state of Oaxaca, the cookies are presented in fringed white tissue paper and given as favors to wedding guests. In the United States, they are often called snowballs.

    The Austrian version is called kipfel, and in Greece, they are known as kourambiethes.

    Traditionally, the Mexican version uses pecans, but other nuts, including walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, and pistachios, also taste good.

    Ingredients

    2 1/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 cup unsalted butter, softened
    1 1/4 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar
    1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
    3/4 cup finely chopped nuts

    Directions

    In a medium-size bowl, stir the flour and salt. In a large bowl, using a wooden spoon, mix together the butter and 1/2 cup of the confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Stir in the vanilla extract and then the flour mixture until it is blended. Finally, stir in the nuts.
