Thin Mexican Wedding Cookies Recipe

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Domino/C&H Sugar. The opinions and text are all mine.


Yep, Christmas is in just less than two weeks. Are you ready for the most beautiful time of year? Decorations are up, the weather is not, and presents are wrapped under the tree! I’m excited and cannot wait till Christmas to see my kids faces while they open their presents.

We have many great tradition activities planned in the coming weeks, which include a ginger bread house, baking Christmas cookies, a tamalada, and even mini buñuelos!

Every Holiday season, we bake the same wedding cookies, but this year, I’m planning on making my favorite holiday cookie into a very thin version that is delicate, delicious and that melts in your mouth.

Ingredients:

•1 Cup of finely crushed Pecans or Almonds

. 2 Sticks (1Cup) of Unsalted Butter, softend.

•1 1/2 Cup of C&H® Powdered Sugar

•1 Tsp of Vanilla

•2 Cups of Flour

•1 Tbsp of Ground Cinnamon

Directions:

1.In a food processor, grind pecans until they are very fine.

2.Using a mixer, cream butter until light and fluffy.

3.Add 1/2 cup of powdered C&H® powdered sugar and vanilla to the butter and blend well.

4.Add flour and mix well until combined.

5.Place dough in a container and wrap with plastic. Refrigerate for about 15 minutes until dough is a bit firm.

6.On a small bowl combine the remaining cup of powdered sugar with ground cinnamon. Set aside.

7. Preheat oven at 350F.

8.Roll out dough to about 1/2 inch.

9.Using a circle cookie cutter, cut circles of about 1 3/4 inches or 4.445 cm in width and place them on a cookie sheet one inch apart.

10.Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden at the bottom.

11.Let cookies rest for about 5 minutes on cookie sheet. Then transfer the warm cookies to the cinnamon sugar then sprinkle some more if desired using a wire mesh.

12.Let cool.
