Melting Moments Cookie Recipe
They are called anything from Mexican Wedding Balls to Melting Moments or even Melt Away Cookies. I’ve had this recipe for years! I used to roll them into balls then roll them in powder sugar as they cooled. This year to save time I rolled them into logs and cut them into bite size pieces before baking. Then I sprinkled them with powder sugar. Whatever you call them and however you bake them, they are delicious!

Recipe Notes

You can roll the cookies in powedered sugar or sprinkle the sugar over them.  I placed the sugar in a sieve or strainer and shook it over the cookies.
