Mexican Wedding Cookies simplicity makes them accessible to everyone - right out of their own oven.
Servings 42 Cookies
- 1 cup dairy-free butter, softened
- ½ cup organic powdered sugar, for inside the cookies
- 1 ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 ¼ teaspoon almond extract
- 1 ¾ cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 1 cup ground almonds, raw
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ⅔ cup organic powdered sugar, for coating at the end
Cream the vegan butter and the ½ cup of organic powdered sugar with a hand mixer.
It takes a little while to get it light and fluffy and I do this at medium speed. Stir in both of the extracts.
Mix in the flour and ground almonds, salt and stir until smooth.
Chill for one hour.
Form into 1"balls - I use a small cookie scoop. Place on a baking sheet.
Bake at 300° for 35 minutes.
Transfer to a rack to cool for about 10 minutes.
Roll cookies in powdered sugar. Let cool completely.
Serve or refrigerate or freeze.
