Mexican Cookie Recipe

Anyone have a good Mexican cookie recipe? I'm going to a party Saturday with a Mexican theme. I was asked to bring dessert. Thanks!

Mexican Wedding Cookies are delicious. We always called them Russian Teacakes when I was growing up, and I think some people call them Sandies, but they are all the same!

You could also probably find some chile pepper cookie cutters or maybe sombrereos, if you want something Mexican themed rather than authentic.

Have a great fiesta!

Check this site out as well. In the future, just google what you are looking for. Pretty good chance you'll find it. You can also use:, There are so many. Just take the time and you'll find what you need more then 80% of the time. However, there are times when you will want to pull your hair out too! :o) Have fun


at the party and have a Margarita for me!

I ended up making Sugar cookies with added Lime zest and juice and I mixed some lime juice with the sugar crystals that I coat the cookies in before baking. I called them Margarita sugar cookies and they were a hit!


Also, they were much better than the Mexican wedding cookies that someone else made and brought. I'm a soft cookie person and evidently the other partygoers were as well.
