Some people call these cookies Mexican wedding cookies, others call them Russian tea cakes or snowball cookies....they have different names, but whatever you decide to call them we can agree on one thing...they are melt in your mouth delicious little bits and are addicting!

I had every intention of making these and giving them as a care package to my brother in a Christmas tin this year, but one taste and my husband shook his head and said with his mouth full, "you aren't giving these away". So, sorry bro...these cookies are already over half gone the first night! I'll need to make them again and double the batch I guess for any to get to you. lol
