Mexican wedding cookies gone vegan! Coconut oil, walnuts, pecans baked to perfection and coated in all the powdered sugar. This cookie recipe is a staple for Christmas cookie season!
I’ve never met a cookie with so many names. In our family, we call them Russian tea cakes, but they also go by Mexican Wedding Cookies, Snowballs, Southern Pecan Butterballs, Italian Wedding Cookies, Sand Tarts. I mean the list really does go on!
The only conclusion I draw is this cookie is loved worldwide. But for consistency sake, we’ll call them Mexican Wedding Cookies.
What’s not to love? Buttery cookie filled with nuts and rolled in sugar. It’s everything bad for you but tastes so good!
