Winter Wonderland

There's something about the atmosphere during the holiday season that makes it a little more warm and cozy, no matter where you are. Even though California is enjoying 80 degree temperatures right now, I still get into the spirit of the season. I spent the weekend decorating my house for Christmas and doing a little baking on the side. Christmas cookies are one of my favorite parts of the holidays because it takes me back to my childhood, making cookies with my mom and sister. Mexican wedding cookies have always been on the top of my cookie favorites, mainly because they are fun to eat, fun to make and covered in powdered sugar. Who can resist that, right? I used this recipe and my cookies came out just as tasty as I remember them.

*On a sidenote, the recipe called for the cookies to bake for 35 minutes, I cut it down to 30 minutes and they came out perfecto!

 Dry ingredients mixed together first.
Room temperature butter to be added in pieces.
Use your hands to mix ingredients. It's fun.

Warm cookies

Get ready to dive into the powdered sugar. The cookies, of course.
Voila! Aren't they cute?
