Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 12
  • ¾ cup flour + 1 tablespoon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground vanilla powder
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp almond flour
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  • ¼ cup Artisana Raw Pecan Butter
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients.
  3. Add butter and pecan butter and knead in until dough comes together (crumbly dough, but when squeezed in your palm, it stays formed)
  4. Rest in fridge for an hour and roll into small balls. Place on lined baking sheet and bake until dried. (Or press into a rounded teaspoon and slide out! You'll have flat bottomed cookies!)
  5. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes and then roll in powdered sugar. Joe the Baker suggested adding spices such as cinnamon to your powdered sugar for a more adult taste!
  6. Enjoy, at a Mexican wedding or on a random weekday!
bake time is approximate - cookies need to be dry
