Top Rated Mexican Wedding Cookie Recipes

Mexican Wedding cookies (back)
These shortbread-like nut balls are mysteriously referred to both as Russian Tea Cookies and Mexican Wedding Cakes — for Phoebe’s Top Chef Cook-Off, I stuck with the theme of the latter. Typically, you make them with very little sugar in the dough; they’re sweetened instead by rolling them through a mountain of powdered sugar after baking. But because I wasn’t in the mood to dust powdered sugar from every corner of my kitchen, I opted to mix the sugar into the dough. They stay crisp this way, too — whereas sugar on the outside can become soggy.

This is a wonderful recipe. My mom got it from a lady she worked with years ago. The recipe card is becoming worn and I am posting so it is not lost forever. This is a very moist cake.

My mother got this recipe from Helen Osbourne who ran the church librarby in Eastland TX. This cake is dense and moist and oh so rich. On top of all that, its EASY! Its been a standard go-to recipe for years! Enjoy! The original recipe calls for it to be iced in the pan and served as a sheet cake, but I have used in in layer cakes. Just use parchment paper in the pan so it comes out easily!

We used to make this to take for parties, it's a very good sweet and rich cake. If you wanted to make it fancy put it in two round pans and make it a layer cake with icing in the middle and on the sides, use whole pecans and place around the sides, top with pineapple rings with strawberries sitting in the middles.

Innocent looking mounds of powdered sugar seem to explode in your mouth. Terrific light and crisp texture.

Called a cake but they are cookies. This recipe does not call for nuts like the others here at Zaar. Posted for Zaar World Tour 2006

"Rich, delicate, pretty cookie for Holiday or party trays. Melts in your mouth. Easy to make, just a little labor intensive. The less you handle this dough, the more delicate the finished cookie."

This is a recipe that my oldest daughter received in H.S. in Spanish class. Depending on your mood, likes or dislikes, you can add a 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts or not.
