I only have recipes/photos for Mexican wedding cookies -
I've never made them but buy them if I see them at a certain local bakery.
Me, I hardly ever have pecans on hand..
Anyway, they melt in your mouth, as they say.
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar (plus about 1/2 cup for rolling)
1 teaspoon Rodelle Vanilla Extract
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup pecans, toasted, finely chopped (in a food processor)
Beat the butter in the bowl of an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
Add the 1/4 cup powdered sugar and Rodelle Vanilla Extract and mix to combine.
Beat in the flour and pecans until completely combined.
Roll the dough into a ball and wrap with plastic. Refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Roll about a tablespoon of dough into a ball and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat, placing dough about 1/2-inch apart.
Bake until the bottom is lightly golden browned, about 15 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes, then roll each cookie in powdered sugar and let cool on a cooling rack.
