This is my variation of the popular Mexican Wedding Cookie. My sister Robyn makes these every year, and we can never get enough. So I had to have the recipe to make more.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream butter with the 1/4 cup of sugar and blend well.
  2. Combine flour and cinnamon.
  3. Add flour mixed with cinnamon (a bit at a time) and mix well. Add extract and stir in nuts.
  4. Shape teaspoonfuls of dough into crescent shapes and bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 325°F for 18-20 minutes. Let cookies cool for about 5 minutes and then coat well with powdered sugar.
  5. Variation: roll dough into 1-inch balls and bake (same as above). When cookies are cool, GENTLY roll in confectioners' sugar until coated well.

Delicious melt-in-your mouth cookies. Made them into crescent shapes exactly as written. They will be an excellent addition to the cookies I make for Christmas gifts.
