Traditional Mexican Wedding Cookies

Traditional Mexican wedding cookies

These cookies are delicious treats to have after dinner, or at an event. They are often displayed at big events like weddings in Mexico. However they are commonly served during Christmas time in other parts of the world.

Disclaimer- this recipe calls for nuts, do not consume if you are allergic to nuts.

Cookie History

The origin of these cookies is unknown, but it is believed by historians that the name “Mexican  wedding cookies” was created to replace the term “Russian teacakes” due to the strained relationship between the United States and Russia, during the Cold War.

  • one cup of softened butter
  • 1/2 cup of powdered sugar

    Mixture of sifted flour and salt. (s)
  • one teaspoon vanilla
  • two and 1/4 cups of sifted flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup of chopped walnuts or 3/4 cup of pecans
  • powdered sugar (for rolling the baked cookies in)


Right before they go in the oven.

To be honest the main reason that I baked these cookies was because of my mom. These cookies are my mother’s favorite type of cookies because they remind her of her childhood. The cookies were overall pretty easy to make, however my arms did hurt a lot after. I recommend trying them out.

Hello, my name is Sophia, I am a sophomore this year. I joined Golden Times in my freshman year and I had a great time. I enjoy painting, writing, and cooking. However when it comes to cooking, eight out of ten times the end result comes out decent. Even though I'm not the best at cooking, I hope to improve on my skills. As mentioned before, I enjoy writing both in and out of school. I hope to have a great time this year along with everyone else! -"A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new."-Albert Einstein
