Wedding Cake Cookies

In Mexico we have a very popular recipe for wedding cookies. This recipe is a family recipe that I want to share with all of you:

Ingredients:  Makes 3 dz. aprox.

1 cup softened butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon MEXICAN vanilla
2 1/4 cups sifted flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chopped pecans
Extra powdered sugar for rolling baked cookies in.


  1. Cream together butter and powdered sugar until light and fluffy; stir in vanilla.
  2. Whisk together flour and salt; add gradually to butter mixture; stir in chopped nuts.
  3. Chill dough if it seems too soft.
  4. Roll dough and cut with cookie cutter of your preference  or roll 1.25" balls and place on parchment paper
  5. Bake at 400° for 10-12 minutes or just until the cookies start to turn light golden-brown; remove from oven and allow to cool slightly; while cookies are still warm (but NOT hot) remove them from baking sheets and roll, a few at a time, in powdered sugar until evenly coated; cool cookies completely on wire racks.
We usually make cookie balls and bake them like that.  But there are many options when you use your imagination.

June is the most popular month for weddings so, bridal showers should be taking place right now. I found this picture on the internet and thought that this design will go perfect with a bridal shower or even at the wedding reception.  If you decide to go with this design, it will be better if you don't dip your cookies in powdered sugar.
Use 3 different size of round cutters and decorate with  royal Icing and make some beautiful mini roses  with the silicone molds that we carry at You are going to love this mold and many more that you will find.
Have fun!
