Mexican Wedding Cookies

Christmas is always a great time to be with family.  I especially love making memories with my kids.  This year my daughter and I decided to make some Mexican Wedding Cookies aka “polvorones”.  I love when she gets these sudden urges to create things in the kitchen because I know I get to be involved.

I posted our process on Snapchat (sillysil2u) and many of you requested the recipe and so we gladly will share it with you.  This is a very simple recipe with few ingredients.  Enjoy “y Feliz Navidad” to all our Social Media familia!

Bendiciones y con mucho amor!

Silvia and Jezreel (daughter)

1 cup of butter
1/2 cup of powdered sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
2 1/4 cup of flour
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of chopped walnuts



Cream together butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla.  Slowly add the salt and flour.  Round 1 inch balls with your hand.  Bake 10-12 minutes.  Do not let them brown too much.  Make sure to preheat oven at 400 degrees.

After they have cooled for a couple of minutes, roll in powder sugar.  Once cooled completely, roll in sugar again.


And your done!

  2. We love these. We had them at our daughter’s wedding. Some of the ladies at church made some too so that there would be plenty. Sweet memories.

    These cookies were a staple at all the weddings I attend as a child in West
    Texas. Now I can make them on my own and I didn’t realize they are so easy to make!
    Thank you for sharing your abuelita with us I love her!!!!
