Save Room For Dessert: Wedding Cookies!

Kris here from Behold the Metatron, The Motivation Station, The Writer’s Blog, Where to Vegan, AND Veggie Tales here at the crazy kitch! I don’t think I have enough time on my hands! Anyway… in the spirit of our love for all things dessert, here’s one of my favorites!

Wedding Cookies

Whether you call them Italian, Russian, Greek… these cookies are still the same delicious, powdery balls of nutty sweetness. And what better way to celebrate Wedding Season with a treat fit for a scrumptious reception!


1 1/2 cups unsalted butter
3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups finely ground almonds (I used 1/2 pecan 1/2 almond)
4 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar for rolling


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). 
  2. Cream butter or margarine in a bowl, gradually add confectioners’ sugar and salt. Beat until light and fluffy. Add almonds and vanilla. Blend in flour gradually and mix well.
  3. Shape into balls (or crescents) using about 1 teaspoon for each cookie. Place on ungreased cookie sheets, and bake for 15-20 min. Do not brown. Cool slightly, then roll in the extra confectioners’ sugar.

Now, this recipe is for up to 80 cookies. If you are not in the mood to make that many… just click here and the recipe adjuster will help you out!
