Tuesday Treats: Anniversary Time

Happy Anniversary, Lawyer Guy. 36 and counting. Wow…

So I’m in a wedding kind of mood, which is why I enjoy writing my Red Dirt Royalty series for Harlequin Desire. There’s always a Happy Ever After and a wedding. Except maybe this current book. 😉 Ha! Gotcha worried, right? Anyway, when looking around for recipes, I came across this one, which is one I’ve made because this is a favorite cookie.

Total Time: 35 Min.
Prep Time: 20 Min.
Cook Time: 15 Min.
Makes 48 cookies

Try our Mexican Wedding Cookies Recipe now or forever hold your peace. These tasty treats use just five ingredients and need only 20 minutes of prep time. Say ‘I do’ to this Mexican Wedding Cookies Recipe.

What You Need
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar, divided
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 cup finely chopped PLANTERS Pecans

Let’s Make It
1 – Heat oven to 350°F.
2 – Beat butter, 1/2 cup sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour, beating on low speed after each addition until well blended. Add nuts; mix well.
3 – Shape dough into 48 (1-inch) balls. Place, 1-1/2 inches apart, on baking sheets.
4 – Bake 14 to 15 min. or until bottoms are lightly browned. Cool 5 min. on baking sheets. Roll warm cookies, 1 at a time, in remaining sugar in small bowl until evenly coated; place on wire racks. Cool completely.

Kitchen Tips
Tip 1 – Make it Easy: Use a blender or food processor to finely chop the nuts. Just be careful not to overprocess them or you’ll end up with nut butter!

Tip 2 – How to Store: Store in tightly covered container at room temperature.

CLICK HERE to get all the nutritional info. Normally, this is where I’d feature a cover and a character from one of my books. But all my books have Happy Ever Afters (or Happy For Nows) so you can click on my book list and pick any of my books to read. Why do I write romance? Because 36 years ago, I married my best friend and found my own HEA. Wanna see what we looked like back then? I’ll never see that size 3 wedding dress again but hey, he still loves me so it’s all good. 😀

  1. So pretty! And darlin’, won’t none of see a size 3 again. (Well, actually, i haven’t seen a size three since I was a child. At my skinniest, I got down to a 6 and I looked anorexic.) I’m so glad you found your Mr. Right thirty-six years ago and that you’ve been together ever since. And that it spurred you to write what you do. Because I do love your writings.

    The Kid made Mexican Wedding Cookies for a Social Studies assignment (when she was still public schooled.). I remember them being tasty, but I’ve gotten the urge to make them myself. I did another batch of granola bars yesterday. Nutritious and delicious, doncha know.

      There was a bakery downtown when I was growing up and they baked a big batch one day each week. You could buy them in small amounts or by the dozen and they were always gone before mid-afternoon. So simple yet so yummy.

      And yeah, I got lucky. 🙂
