Christmas Wedding Cookies

These are some of my all-time favorite cookies... and they are SO simple to make...

Christmas Wedding Cookies

1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 cup butter, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups all-pupose flour
1 cup finely chopped almonds or pecans
1/4 teaspoon salt
powdered sugar

Pre-heat oven to 325 F. In a large bowl combine 1/2 cup powdered sugar, butter and vanilla. Blend well. Stir in flour, nuts and salt until dough holds together. Shape into 1-inch balls. Place inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 15-20 minutes until set but not brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheets. Cool slightly and roll in powdered sugar. Cool completely and reroll in powdered sugar.

Hi, Peggy! These look absolutely de-lish! I can imagine how they melt in the mouth. Those wedding cookies are some of my faves--and perfect for Christmas!

Thank you for your kind words over at the Wellspring the other day. I so appreciate all the amazing women I have met and God has led me to through the blogging community. Many blessings to you!

Ooh, Yummy! How happy am I that I ran across your blog, and you put this recipe up!? yay!
I wish you a happy hunt for your dress, by the way! What fun! A Summer ago, I went to all kinds of lengths to find the perfect dress and have it altered, then I saw the Mother of the Bride dress, and started all over again. Mine was nothing flashy, just raw silk, but her's was a printed cotton. Ah well . . . :) Congratulations on the upcoming wedding! Isn't it wonderful to see your children blessed?!
