For work, we had a pot luck lunch to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. I made Mexican Wedding Cakes. They’re small cookies and remind me of Pecan Sandies. I used flour, shortening, sugar and vanilla, then added walnuts. I rolled them into small balls, walnut size, then placed them on a greased cookie sheet. The oven was preheated to two hundred degrees, and the cookies were baked for about forty minutes. The directions said twenty-five to thirty-five minutes, but I thought they needed a bit more time. When I took them out, I rolled them in powdered sugar before they cooled.
