    Ok as I've said in a past thread my FI and I have decided to do a little recipe book of mexican dishes. His family loves to cook so I thought this would be great for them. While looking for recipes I came across one for mexican wedding cookies. I thought it would be cute to add these to our OOT bags for the guests as well as putting it in our recipe book.

    I found the recipe in a search engine but ill put it on here for anyone who might want to do this too.

    Mexican wedding cookies
    Servings: 8
    What you need: 1 cup butter, 1/2 cup white sugar, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, 2 teaspoons water, 2 cups all purpose flour, 1 cup chopped almonds, and 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
    Directions: in a medium bowl cream the butter and sugar.
    Stir in vanilla and water. Add the flour and almonds, mix until blended. Cover and chill for 3 hours. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Shape dough into balls or crescents. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from pan to cool. When the cookies are cool, roll in confectioners sugar then store at room temperature in an airtight container.

          Great idea, thanks! We, too, love to cook/bake and that would be a great addition to the oot bags. Any idea of you will get them safely down to Mexico?

              I haven't figured out how I'm going to take them. I will probably make them the night before and take them on the plane when we go. If I have any problems with that I might se if the resort can make them fresh and we can stick them in the bags when we get there

                You can try and take them with you, but it is prohibited to take homemade baked goods into Mexico. Anything baked that you purchase and is wrapped w/ proper label is allowed. But I'm sure you can find somewhere to pick them up in Mexico. I know in Akumal we bought them for our OOT bags from a bakery in the small town we had our wedding and they were only .30 cents each.
