~Mexican Wedding Cakes~
Yesterday I baked my favorite Christmas cookies. Mexican Wedding Cakes. I've loved these little cookies since the first time I ate one and that Christmas 1951, the year I was in the second grade. Three classmates and myself were invited to our teachers home for dinner (a special reward for good citizenship) we were so excited and thrilled to be going to our teacher's home. When I was little we adored our teachers, they just were so special to us...well anyway, to dinner we went. It was magical. In her home the lights were low and her Christmas tree was so beautiful and twinkly, there were candles everywhere. My family never burned candles so I was in paradise. Dinner was served on pretty dishes...I don't remember what was served but for our dessert we had wonderful little cookies....Mexican Wedding Cakes. Oh, I had to have the recipe. When my mom came to take me home Miss Hill gave my mom her recipe and here it is........ I know it is in pretty sad shape....I don't care. It's in my mom's handwriting and there are wonderful memories attached to this recipe that I've made every year since 1952. If you click on the picture, I think you can read the recipe.
