How can a cookie with only four ingredients taste SO good?
Curt Cutler made his famous Mexican Wedding aka Snowball cookies at our holiday cookie class on Tuesday.
I'm a sucker for anything that resembles a shortbread cookie: one part sugar, two parts butter, three parts flour, no leavening. Oh, and a little powdered sugar to top it off.
Seriously, simplicity never tasted so good.
Cutler's Mexican Wedding Cookies aka Snowball Cookies
2 sticks (1 cup) butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups chopped pecans
2 cups flour
powdered sugar for top of cookies after baking
Cream butter and sugar thoroughly. Add pecans and flour and mix until well blended.
Form cookies using a cookie scoop into approximately 1/2 to 3/4 inch balls. Drop cookies onto ungreased baking sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 14-15 minutes.
Let cool, then dip into powdered sugar. Store in a single layer, covered.
