Mexican wedding cookies are a traditional cookie served at traditional Mexican weddings, but they're also a tasty treat to add to any Christmas cookie platter. Also known as Christmas snowball cookies, these easy to make treats are sure to please everyone!
Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Gently stir in vanilla extract. Sift flour and whisk together with salt. Gradually add dry ingredients to the butter mixture until combined. Stir in chopped nuts and mix well.
Chill dough for 30 minutes to make it easier to work with. Once chilled, form 1" balls of dough and place on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
Bake at 400°F 10-12 minutes or just until the cookies are a light golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool on wire racks for approx 5-8 minutes until just cool enough to handle. Roll each cookie in powdered sugar completely. It's easiest to do these a few at a time so it works quickly. Allow to cool completely.
When fully cooled, roll each cookie a second time to ensure they're fully coated in powdered sugar. Enjoy!
