This recipe was Inspired By the Mexican Wedding cookies everyone has come to know and Love. I make these also, just wanted something a little different, so came up with these, using coconut.
I have made this cookie adding many different things and makes it an all new cookie.Everytime I see wedding cookies it reminds me of this recipe.

My Variations; I have added, Dates, Raisins, Walnuts, Pecans, Mini Chips,cinnamin,Pumpkin pie or apple pie spices, even mincemeat. You can do anything you like and this cookie will be good.
Possibilities are Endless.
