MEXICAN WEDDING COOKIES

I've made these cookies for many years. Some people call them Pecan Sandies or Crescents but the recipe I use is actually called Mexican Wedding Cookies.

These are one of my favorite cookies because they're crunchy but not hard and not too sweet but sweet enough.


The recipe is from my mom's church cookbook and the recipe was submitted by Cheryl Gardner.
