Mexican Wedding Cookies

I have my last Spanish class on Wednesday, so I thought I'd make something to take to class. I decided on Mexican Wedding Cookies. I used this recipe, and while the finished product turned out well enough, it didn't go quite as I had planned.

You're supposed to chill the dough for 3 hours. Well, I was a bit busy on Sunday, so the dough ended up chilling for about six hours. When I took it out of the fridge, it was hard as a rock. There was no way I was making the cookies right away. I let it sit out on the counter for about 2 hours, and the dough was finally workable.

The recipe says it makes 18 servings, but I didn't know if that meant 18 cookies, or if there was more than one cookie per serving. I used the tablespoon to scoop out the dough and I think the recipe made about 35 cookies.

So all in all, they turned out OK, but I think I might try a different recipe next time!

  1. Those look like my family's Russian teacake Christmas cookie recipe. I'll have to try 'em out.
