Chocolate Chip Mexican Wedding Cakes
These Mexican dessert "cakes" are actually cookies, much loved for their delicate texture and flavor. Here, they're drizzled with chocolate for extra pizzazz.
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
- 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup finely chopped nuts
- 2 to 2 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 2 cups (12-ounce package) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels, divided
Directions, Reviews, Nutrition
BEAT butter and sugar in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in vanilla extract. Gradually beat in flour, nuts and cinnamon. Stir in 1 ½ cups morsels. Roll dough into 1-inch balls; place on ungreased baking sheets.
BAKE for 10 to 12 minutes or until set and light golden brown on bottom. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
MICROWAVE remaining morsels in heavy-duty plastic bag on HIGH (100%) power for 30 seconds; knead. Microwave at 10- to 15-second intervals, kneading until smooth. Cut a tiny corner from bag; squeeze to drizzle over cookies. Refrigerate cookies for about 5 minutes or until chocolate is set. Store at room temperature in airtight container.

Thank you for reviewing this recipe.
I picked these for my Spanish Project and they turned out really good. It would have been better if they were a little more moist. Overall, very good!
Elegant and Delicious
These cookies are extremely delicious. They have a light, delicate texture when properly prepared, and are simple to make for even the most inexperienced chefs. They are a shortbread, though, so if you are not a fan of shortbread, you will not like these cookies! Every time I make these they receive high praise and people always request the recipe. They are a nice thing to make if you want to impress people without working too hard. Enjoy!
I did not find mine crumbly at all, but very airy and not too sweet, but then that's how we like it here.

It Was Okay
These were okay...they could have been a little more moist though...the chocolate chips made them better.
