MEXICAN WEDDING COOKIES

I found this recipe over at
Mizze's




1 cup confectioners’ sugar, plus additional for rolling


1 cup butter, softened


2 teaspoons vanilla extract


1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


1/4 teaspoon salt


1 cup ground almonds (or any other nuts you choose—some candidates for President come to mind)


1/2 cup chopped dried cranberries


2 cups all-purpose flour




Preheat oven to 350°. Cream together sugar and butter. Add remaining ingredients and mix until well blended. Form dough into 1-inch balls and place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until set and just barely light brown. Roll in additional confectioners’ sugar while still warm and place on wire racks to cool. Store in airtight container.
