all this cookie talk inspired me to make a vegan version of what used to be a favourite of mine!
Mexican Wedding Cookies
4 cups unbleached flour
2 cups Earth Balance
1 cup walnut crumbs
1/2 cup confectioner's/powdered/icing sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
more powdered sugar for dusting the cookies with
Preheat your oven to 325 F. In a large bowl, mix the flour, walnut crumbs and salt. In a seperate large bowl, cream the margarine and 1/2 cup of powdered sugar together, then beat in the vanilla extract. Stir the flour/walnut mixture into the marg/sugar/vanilla in three parts, making sure it is well-mixed. Form the dough into walnut-sized balls and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until the bottoms of the cookies are just turning golden. Remove from the oven and sprinkle liberally with more powdered sugar, then let cool on the baking sheet.
Makes about 32 cookies.
