Servings Per Recipe: 1
"My Mom also made these every Christmas and I think they were my favorite one..... although oatmeal raisin cookies may not be Christmasy but I think they might be better! I'm gonna find out tonight! :-)"
"Probably the easiest cookie I've ever made. They tasted so delicate and yummy."
"I made these and they were very crumbly. I think I may have made them too small because I had to shorten the cooking time as well. Either way, I don't think that I will make them again."
"My mom made these for christmas every year too! They are the favorite cookie of all three of us kids... and i grew up to make them for my own kids. Also called mexican wedding cakes or cookies. Love this recipe!"
"I made these tonight, and added some white chocolate chips. They came out great! I got 31 cookies out of the batch. I'm bringing them to Christmas with the family tomorrow :)"
"Quick, simple, delicious. Thank you!"
"Only 16 or 17 in a batch of these so my cookies were too large. I thought they were only one inch balls but in reality they were were really 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 inch in size (baked them for 20 minutes). Picture is coming shows my cookies next to a hersey kiss for size comparison. My daughter describes these as crumbly melt in your mouth low density cookies. She thinks I should put carmel on top and make them like a pralines. She gave them 4 out of 5 stars (discounted for lack of chocolate and carmel) but I gave them a 5 - next time I will make them 1/2 as big I'll try a actual teaspoon to measure them out."
"these were so easy to make! i tripled the recipe. these cookies are so light, very good!! will be making these alot. Thanks for a very quick and easy recipe."
"Very yummy cookies! I got 30 cookies out of it."
"Very tender delicate cookies. Almost melt in your mouth!Very light flavor. I added just a pinch of baking powder, but otherwise followed the recipe. Baked them the full 15 min. They look like little snow balls, after being rolled in powdered sugar. I got 24 cookies, the perfect amount for three of us! Thanks for this recipe. I will for sure make this again and again."
"This made 26 cookies for me. Very yummy addition to the Christmas cookie collection!"
