20--- Mexican Wedding Cookies

Today-- in honor of my friend Rachelle's wedding. She is not Latino-- I believe she is Filipino. But, you get the point.

These sweet little cookies are perfect for bridal showers and baby showers (yes, you can shape them to look like babies). They are so simple to make!

Mexican Wedding Cookies
Makes ~3 dozen small cookies

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 cup slivered almonds
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 tsp water
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a medium bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Stir in vanilla and water. Add the flour and almonds, mix until blended.

Shape dough into balls. Place on an unprepared cookie sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from pan to cool on wire racks. Combine confectioners' sugar and cinnamon. When cookies are cool, roll in confectioners' sugar mixture. Store at room temperature in an airtight container.
