ABOUT Mexican Wedding Cookies /Polvorones/Snowball Cookies RECIPE

Dead simple to make and it looks like 'Melting Moments' but the only difference is they have nuts, due to that they are sandy in texture. They are coated twice with powdered sugar which is the secret to them being wonderfully 'melt in the mouth' types .
