New Mexican Wedding Cookies

Kaylie’s Mom and Grandmother can be accredited for this recipe that has made it’s way into the hands and mouths of the vegans.

These cookies go by many different names. They seem to be made for weddings in many different cultures. Maybe I will want them served at my wedding.

(new) mexican wedding cookies

1 cup Earth Balance
½ cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup chopped pecans
¾ cup powdered sugar(I shift it)
1 – 2 Tablespoons Rum

-Beat butter for 30 seconds; add granulated sugar and beat till fluffy.  Add vanilla and 1-2 tablespoons rum (depending on the flavour you want); beat well. Stir in flour and pecans.  Shape into 1-inch balls or 1 1/2×1/2 inch finger rolls.  Place on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake in a 325 degree oven about 20 minutes.  Cool completely. (I do not do this, I cool until the next batch is done, the powdered sugar warms with the cookies and then you dunk them again.) I feel if you wait too long the sugar does not stick to the cookies. I put powdered sugar in a plastic bag and put a few coolies in at a time. Depending on how big you make your cookies will depend on how many you get.
