Neighborhood Gift Idea #5: Mexican Wedding Cookies

Hmm….don’t they look delicious? These cookies are absolutely delicious and decorated well for the holidays. What cookie rolled in soft powdery powdered sugar doesn’t look festive for the holidays? Also, because they are rolled in powdered sugar and are a round cookie they look VERY gourmet for little effort! Mexican Wedding Cookies (also called Nut Log Cookies) are filled with nuts (so…they’re delicious!) and also GREAT for disguising wheat. Because wheat has a nutty flavor it compliments the actual nuts AND can actually help extend the flavor of the nuts with out adding more nuts…and now youe saving money AND time. *sigh* Oh, how I love food storage! These cookies can either be packaged in tins or packaged on little plates like the bread for great neighborhood gifts!
