I don’t know if I’ve talked about it much here, but Nathan definitely knows that I love too many things. You may think that’s not feasible, but it is – I promise. I’m not indecisive and I’m definitely not indifferent – I just have a vast love for nearly everything in life. So meals are harder, trips are more difficult, even weekend plans are filled with dozens of things I’d love to do regardless of the season.
So whenever I can, I combine things I love. (Which is actually one of the reasons I love blogging.) But this recipe is exactly that: a culmination of all the flavors I’ve seen this delicious cookie in. Why only go with almond or only pecans or even only walnuts when you can have all three?!
While these may not be your traditional Mexican Wedding Cookies, it’s an absolutely delicious recipe that is my go-to dessert for events where we’ll need to serve a larger guest list.
And since this week’s theme for the Maker’s Mix-Up challenge is snow, I thought it was extra fitting because they remind me of all the little snow mounds around here! Although we’re kind of lacking in the snow department this year. Just frigid temps instead! Jessica and I would LOVE to have you link up your favorite snow crafts or recipes with us this week! See the bottom of the post for the link-up plus the upcoming themes!
But back to these delicious Mexican Wedding Cookies.
They yield a lot. And they’re dangerously good. And ridiculously easy. So really, what is there not to love about them?
One of the reasons I love them so much though is because they aren’t ridiculously sweet. Ever since I became pregnant, my love for sweet treats has been on a major rollercoaster ride. At first, I absolutely loathed the idea of chocolate anything. Candy bars, cookies, cakes – they sounded super unappealing. Then a few weeks ago, my sweet tooth came back in full force and this was all I wanted to eat. Now it seems to have found a happy medium and these cookies are perfect for that.
They have a hint of sweetness, but not a total sugar bomb. Which is why they’re so dangerous!
