A dear friend of mine shared this delicious cookie recipe with me. I feel so honored to have such a recipe to pass down to my children.


They are melt in your mouth delicious! I love the ease of them also. I had them mixed up in a matter of 5 minutes.

This attractive cookie would look so beautiful displayed on your tray full of Christmas goodies.

You could easily double or triple the batch.

Enjoy!

How to Make Italian Wedding ( Cookies )

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degree F. ( after dough has had time to chill.)
  2. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until well blended.
  3. Next, add the vanilla.
  4. Sift the flour and salt together, then mix with the butter and sugar. Blend well.

  9. While warm, roll in confectioners sugar. ( at this stage, be sure to handle with care, as they are easy to crumble. )
