Calling For Christmas Cookie Recipes (Cont.)

Well, the first batches of cookies have been boxed up and are ready for delivery.  I included this concoction, made from a recipe I’ve had for years.  The printed recipe refers to these as “Mexican Wedding Cakes,” which I suspect is a non-PC vestige of the ’50s, so I’ve given them a new namefor Webnerhouse purposes.  Whatever they are called, the cookies are tasty.

Powdered Sugar Balls

Ingredients:  1/2 cup powdered sugar; 1 cup softened butter; 2 teaspoons vanilla; 2 cups all-purpose flour; 1 cups finely chopped almonds or pecans; 1/4 teaspoon salt; powdered sugar

Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.  In a large bowl combine 1/2 cup powdered sugar, butter, and vanilla.  Blend well. Stir in flour, nuts, and salt until dough holds together.  Shape into 1-inch balls.  Place one inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake for 15-20 minutes until set but not brown.  Immediately remove from cookie sheets.  Roll in powdered sugar.
