All of the Land of Lakes recipes that I have used; are excellent. As usual the cookies were fantastic. I baked these Cookie's for 20 minutes.
I did make them with maple instead of vanilla (I have a friend with an allergy to nuts). The smell, taste and texture was a hit.
This recipe was closest to what my mother used to make. I just had to add twice the vanilla, (make sure to use alcohol free from Trader Joe's!), 2T of organic heavy whipping cream, pinch sea salt. By patting down the balls with your fingers, you leave grooves to catch the extra powdered sugar. (Let cookies sit out 2 minutes before gently twisting in powdered sugar and patting a good load on the top of each!) I also roasted fresh pecans in a pan before chopping up and putting into the cookies.
My aunt made these cookies since I was a child and I have very fond memories of her and her cookies. My aunt passed away and I never got the recipe from her. Luckily I found this LOL recipe. I followed the recipe and the cookies turned out perfectly. Melt in your mouth delicious. They taste just like my aunt’s cookies. These will be added to my holiday baking menu.
I baked the cookies for 20 minuets
Being from AZ I know these as Mexican wedding cookies. My family doesn't like the crunch so I substitute crushed almonds for almond extract and it is wonderful. Good easy recipe when making multiple types of cookies over the holidays. I also cover a few with shredded coconut. It's awesome
I use Land O Lakes for all of my cooking and baking. Love your product. Russian tea cakes are my favorite -- from early childhood.
Bake up a new holiday tradition for your family. From rugelach to pepparkakor, and buttercreams to pizzelles, there’s something sweet for every cookie platter.
