    I love these. We always called them Russian Teacakes. (I think they’re also called Mexican wedding cookies.)

    Sorry, I am behind on my blog reading. The original recipe did not contain salt I guess because the salt in the butter should be enough, but no reason not to add it. Corey, your niece and I will be making these this p.m. I can hardly wait! Love, Mom

    Next door to my mom’s salon was a gourmet food store. And when I was a kid, if I behaved in the front of the salon while she had her hair cut and colored, afterward we’d go next door and she’d buy me TWO of these exact cookies. To this day, they are one of my favorites.

    Oooh, my very, very favorite Christmas cookie of all time! I always begged my mom to make these.

    ya know my relatives from the east call these snowball cookies as well. every year i make Mexican wedding cookies here in NM and take them as goodies and they call them snowball cookies. I just think its so funny how its almost the exact same recipe, i always dip them warm in the powered sugar and then dip them again for extra sugary goodness.

    They look sooooo good. Just like one of my favorite cookies. This is my first time here, just wanted to say good job, and I found you on Tastespotting.

    These are also great if you wrap them around 1/4 of a small york peppermint pattie. Just flatten the bal, insert the candy and then roll it around the pattie…sometime a little oozes out, but that’s what makes them homemade!

  23. Pearl says:

    I just made the dough for these cookies. It looks awesome with the tiny bits of toasted pecans, and it tastes good too…lol.
    I like the idea of making cookie dough that sits in the fridge for a bit as that way I can spend a day or two baking and be done. I am taking a batch of the dough and a bag of powdered sugar to my son’s in a few days and that way I can bake with the kids and most of the work is done.
    I can hardly wait to taste these.
    Thanks for the great recipes.
