These are dangerous!


• 1 C butter, softened
• ½ C sugar
• 2 t vanilla
• 2 C all purpose flour
• ½ t salt
• 2 C finely chopped pecans
• Confectioners’ sugar (in a bowl)


Preheat oven to 350.

Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. I skip this step and use parchment paper. In a medium bowl, beat butter and sugar at medium speed with a mixer until creamy, then add vanilla and mix in.
In a large bowl, combine flour, salt and pecans. Gradually add to butter mixture and beat until combined.
Rub hands in flour. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place on prepared baking sheets. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until edges are lightly brown. Let sit 2 minutes on cookie sheets. Remove from cookie sheets and roll in confectioners’ sugar then place on cooling racks to cool.

    Marti, my eldest daughter use to love to make Mexican Wedding Cakes. All her friends were into chocolate chips but these were her specialty. Thanks for a nice memory and a great cookie, I might add.

    This was one of the favorites that my daughter and I used to make. I haven't made them in some time. I think I will make a batch before my next visit. I would love for you to join me for Crock Pot Wednesdays at Dining With Debbie. Come post a favorite slow cooker recipe and grab a new idea as well. Thanks again,
