The Italian Wedding Cookie Recipe makes it’s appearance at Bridal Showers, Baby Showers, and during the Christmas Holidays. They are easy to make and only require just a few ingredients. I like to use an unsalted European style butter and a really good vanilla extract.
These cookies store and freeze well. You can freeze them before you roll them in powder sugar. I layer them between sheets of baking parchment spaced apart inside a container.
Servings: About 80 Cookies
1 1/2 Cups unsalted European butter (it has less water)
3/4 Cup confectioners’ sugar (powdered sugar)
1 1/2 Cups ground almonds
5 Teaspoons vanilla extract
3 Cups All-purpose flour (sifted)
1/4 Teaspoon salt
1/3 Cup powdered sugar for rolling
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C)
