MEXICAN WEDDING COOKIES

by | Apr 23, 2016 | Gluten Free, Vegan | 0 comments

Mexican wedding cakes or cookies are one of Mexico’s famous baked goods..Here is my Noble version. I love them and this was one of my most shared recipes (289 times) on my Facebook page because they are so simple to make, comforting and a crowd pleaser. One of those recipes that can’t go wrong. You can adapt them and make them as you can see: vegan and gluten free also.

Feel free to swap the pecans for walnuts or almonds. You can experiment adding spices or orange or lemon zest as well. I would love to hear about your baking and how you like this recipe. Please share your ideas or questions in the comments (below recipe).

Serves: 60
Ingredients
  • 200 gr European style unsalted butter such as Plugra, President, Kerry Gold or any grass fed butter (you can also use a vegan butter option)
  • 100 gr Swerve Sweetener Confectioner’s Style Sugar (this is my healthy sweetener of choice, please read about it on the FAQ)
  • 2 teaspoons/ 10 gr vanilla (you can also use a vanilla bean or vanilla powder / use 1 teaspoon or 1 vanilla bean scrape the seeds)
  • 300 gr whole spelt flour (for the gluten free option use any good GF flour such as Bobs Red Mill 1:1 or gluten free flour of choice
  • ¼ teaspoon/ 1 gr fine sea salt
  • 130 gr finely chopped pecans/ you can process in a food processor or Thermomix (it should not be ground fine)
  • To decorate: Swerve Sweetener Confectioner’s Style Sugar about 2 cups
Method
  1. Line 2 half sheet baking pans with Silpats. Preheat oven to 340 F.
  2. In a Kitchen Aid mixer with a paddle attachment cream butter and sweetener with vanilla and salt until blended and soft.
  3. Add the pecans, flour and mix until combined and an even dough is formed. With your hands shape cookies into balls of aprox 10 -11 gr each.
  4. Place on baking tray leaving enough space. Note: cookies made with certain gf flours might spread a bit more.
  5. Bake until barely very lightly golden.
  6. Remove from oven, let cool completely. Put cookies onto a tray with paper towels, to drain excess fat.
  7. Put cookies on a bowl with Swerve Sweetener Confectioner’s Style Sugar and coat evenly.
  8. Store cookies in a cookie jar or cookie tin or plastic containers (I recycle my pre washed salad containers, these are excellent storage containers for baked goods).
