These yummy little bites are my mom's Mexican Wedding Cookies. Kind of funny that my mom -- a little Jewish lady from New York -- has a recipe for Mexican Wedding Cookies. But she does, and they're DELICIOUS, and I'm putting the recipe in my book. I made these on Sunday and Mark is still nibbling on them. I always thought they had pecans in them, but my mom's recipe said walnuts or pecans and I had walnuts in the fridge, so that's what I used -- what do you know? They still came out delish, and just like I remember hers tasting.
One great thing about these buttery, crumbly, nutty little treats is that they freeze really well -- very handy for holiday gifts.
