I have a bit of a sweet tooth, which I’ve talked about quite extensively in this blog, and one thing my mom always makes this time of year are her grandmother’s Mexican wedding ring cookies. They are an absurdly easy recipe, just cake flour, powdered sugar, butter, and some vanilla, but they absolutely melt in your mouth when you eat them (provided you made them correctly), and an entire huge Tupperware container of them in our house lasts a week, if that. You grab about a dozen at a time and disappear with them until they too are gone. Rinse, lather, repeat. My great-grandmother’s recipe did not include nuts, though I have heard of people putting almonds or pecans in them, however wrong it is. Don’t complicate things, people. Keep it simple.
