Begin by mixing togather butter, sugar and vanilla in a large mixing bowl; slowly add flour while continuing to beat and then add peacons. Mix until the dough had a nice consistancy. For better mixing results I would recomend thawing the butter in your mixing bowl before you start baking.

Step 3:

Take a typical cookie dough scooper or an ice recam scooper and scoop a ball of dough into your hand. Compact the dought into a ball and squish it flat. Rouund the edges so that all the cookies are even. This allows for eveness when baking.

I am Mexican. I have been to lots of weddings in Mexico. I have never seen these cookies. They look delicious tough :-)

These are exactly what my brother makes for us every year. Except his recipe is no baking required :-) Might just have to make an instructable with that recipe for you guys and gals.

I was excited when I saw this recipe because I had all the ingredients in my kitchen already! I just finished making these- they were pretty easy and are VERY delicious. Mexican Wedding cookies are really popular in the city I live in but I never tried making them. I actually like these more than the store bought kind. I did modify the recipe though, I added about a tsp of Cardamon because I am crazy about that flavor. So I guess I made Mexican-Indian Wedding cookies. ;) They're so good that I know they would have been just as good without the Cardamon. Thanks for posting this recipe- it rocks!

My mom used to make "Russian Tea Cakes" that looked just like these. Are they the same thing?
