Bake cookies

Last Christmas I was baking cookies for our friends and I love to do that. This was my third year of baking of cookies. I found that it is really cool and I love baking right now. It grows on me. Here is the recipe that I bake it already. I love to share it to you. I will assure you that it is really good.

This was my first time that I bake cookies that we gave as gift to friends. Look at my photos

I will share the recipe for Mexican wedding cookies, did you see in the photo the crescent shape of cookies. That is mexican wedding cookies. The preparation was rated as medium.

1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, plus more for coating baked cookies
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting hands
1 cup pecans, chopped into very small pieces
Instructions: Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Using an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar at low speed until smooth. Beat in the vanilla. At low speed gradually add the flour. Mix in the pecans with a spatula. With floured hands, take out about 1 tablespoon of dough and shape into a crescent. Continue to dust hands with flour as you make more cookies. Place onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 40 minutes. When cool enough to handle but still warm, roll in additional confectioners' sugar. Cool on wire racks.

Brian got a recipe from food network which was emailed to him. I made this cookies for the last three years. I just love this cookies, it is yummy!
