This is a recipe from my husband's great-grandmother. I've not made it myself, but her recipes always net fabulous results, and they're often very traditional.
This is a triple recipe - smaller portion recipe is noted at the end of the directions.

How to Make Mexican Wedding Cakes

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix all ingredients together - using your hands works best.
  2. Form into balls the size of large walnuts - place on greased cookie sheet. If desired 1/2 of a candied cherry pressed into the top of each ball gives them a festive air for holidays.
  3. Bake at 350 just until set and very lightly golden brown on the bottom.
  4. After they have cooled - and best just before serving - roll in sifted powdered sugar.
  5. NOTE: This is a triple recipe. For smaller amount, use 1/2 lb margarine, 6 Tbsp powdered sugar, 2 cups of flour, 1 cup nuts and 1 tsp of vanilla.
