Mexican Wedding Cookies

Mexican Wedding Cookies

Hey friends! I originally published this recipe in 2008, my first year of blogging! I’ve recently updated the photos on this old family favorite and hope you get to enjoy the cookies for yourself soon!

My mother used to make these especially for me when I was a little girl because I loved the Danish Wedding Cookies that were sold in the grocery stores. All you had to do was ask for that pink box of cookies and within a day or two, a plate of these would appear on the table! (Did I have her trained, or what?)

Ingredients

  • ½ cup vegetable shortening
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 box white cake mix (15.25 oz or close)
  • ½ cup chopped nuts (optional)
  • ½ cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
