Rich, delicate, pretty cookie for Holiday or party trays. Melts in your mouth. Easy to make, just a little labor intensive. The less you handle this dough, the more delicate the finished cookie.

Simple and delicious! I've made this many times. One day I had no almonds, so, instead I added 1/4 cup more of confectioners sugar (I also skip putting the dough in the fridge) and they still were great! So easy I can't believe it. Thanks for the recipe

I absolutely loved this recipe. I made them for my friends and they ate them in few minutes. This is an easy recipe that does not require tones of ingredients. I like this version of the Mexican Wedding cakes because the ground almonds. I don't usually add the cinnamon. It just melts in the mouth. The best way to bake these cookies is at 275 degrees for 40 minutes.
