Sometimes these are referred to as Mexican Wedding Cakes, but whoever says that is incorrect...at least by my standards since I'm biased having grown up with the original name. The cookies are balls of dough with nuts inside and covered in powered sugar. They're a traditional Christmas Cookie that look like snow balls.

Can use pecans, walnuts or almonds. I prefer using pecans with vanilla, and walnuts with the almond extract. [I posted this recipe.]
