An easy recipe would be Polvorones (also called Mexican wedding cookies, or Russian Tea cakes). It's a shortbread cookie rolled in powdered sugar. You can find them at the grocery store if you don't have time to bake.

Polvorones Almendra / Almond Polvorones

1/2 c. butter
1/4 c. powdered sugar (confectioners)
1 heaping c. flour, sifted
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 c. toasted almonds, ground
Confectioners sugar for rolling


Cream butter; add sugar, flour, salt, vanilla, and almonds, which have been ground in an electric blender or food processor. Form into a ball and refrigerate for several ours. Then roll into balls 1 inch or more in diameter.

Bake in 400 degree preheated oven for about 15 min. or until lightly golden. If you want them crispier leave them longer and if you want them softer shorten the time in the oven. In my oven I leave them for 9 min. Roll in the sugar while still hot; cool. Roll in the sugar again.

Good luck!

I've always made the Mexican Wedding cake version of this cookie with pecans. I'd love to try them with almonds for something a little different. Thanks for posting the recipe!

Honeydukes, I've also done them with just vanilla and just to make something different i put a semi sweet chocolate chip in the center and then put the confectioners sugar on the top, NICE!!!

Enjoy

Here is a recipe for Cochinitos icon_smile.gif (little piglet cookies!)

I use a slightly different recipe- but I lent my book to another teacher. The recipe I have doesn't use white pepper.
