    Deb's Recipes's Note:

    My mom and I have been baking these for as long as I can remember. They are delectable butter-type cookies served as favors at traditional Mexican weddings. They also make a wonderful addition to any Christmas goodie platter.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 36

    Yield:

    dozen

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cream together butter and powdered sugar until light and fluffy; stir in vanilla.
    2. 2
      Whisk together flour and salt; add gradually to butter mixture; stir in chopped nuts.
    3. 3
      Chill dough if it seems too soft.
    4. 4
      Form dough into 1 1/4" balls and place onto parchment-lined or ungreased baking sheets.
    5. 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.
    6. 6
      Cookies may (optionally) be rolled in powdered sugar a second time once cooled to room temperature.
    7. 7
      NOTE: Forming dough into 1" balls will increase yield to 48 cookies.

      This was my first time making them. I hosted a cookie exchange party and they were a hit. Very easy and delicious!

      Fantastic! My grandmother included these as party of her annual Christmas cookie platter and these are just like I remember. Yum! (Only sub was pecans for the walnuts.)
