Mexican Wedding Cake
or Russian Tea Cookies. Whatever you call them they are my favorite! They are only made at Christmas and that makes so special. Mom came over yesterday and we whipped up a batch.
Preheat oven to 350*
Cream 1 cup butter and 1/2 cup powdered sugar until smooth. Add remaining ingredients. 2 cups flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp vanilla and 1 cup chopped pecans. Roll into balls about the size of a small walnut. Bake for 12 15 minutes. Roll in powdered sugar while still warm.
I usually roll them about three times and then sprinkle extra powdered sugar over the top when storing. What is your favorite Christmas cookie?
