An international favorite known by many names, Danish Wedding Cookies are probably one of the most popular cookie recipes out there. Covered with powdered sugar, every bite is absolutely incredible! Great with tea or coffee, pop the entire thing in your mouth for a little bite of heaven.

You might be wondering about the difference between Danish wedding cookies and Mexican wedding cookies. They're the same thing! You might also have heard them called Russian tea cakes. No matter the name, we think they're absolutely delicious (and we think you will, too).

Ingredients

  • 1 cup soft butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups sifted flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
