{TWD} Pecan Powder Puff Cookies

I can't seem to get enough of cookie-baking lately. Few things are more appealing than fresh cookies, and this week's Tuesdays With Dorie baking assignment, Pecan Powder Puffs, provided my latest excuse to fill the proverbial cookie jar!

n.o.e.'s notes:

- Tia of Buttercream Barbie was responsible for choosing this week's recipe. If you'd like the recipe for these Pecan Powder Puffs, click over to her blog.

- This recipe is Dorie Greenspan's version of Mexican wedding cookies.

- The recipe came together easily. The only thing I changed was to use freshly-grated nutmeg instead of cinnamon.

- I found that my melon ball tool was perfect for scooping out the cookie dough into smooth spheres.

the verdict:

These were crumbly, buttery, melt-in-your-mouth delicious cookies. I'm thrilled to add them to my cookie repertory.

I like the nutmeg addition. I like freshly grated nutmeg in most everything!

Buttery, melt-in-your-mouth delicious cookies, that would seriously make me deliriously happy. Perfect for a garden party filled with flowers in bloom, I could drank myself a tea for that. Yummy.

Been meaning to make some of these. And great idea with the nutmeg. There are very few things that can't be made better with a little nutmeg :).

Melon baller a great idea! Your cookies don't look nearly messy enough...lol...one should have powdered sugar all over themselves when one eats these! They look good, just kidding around.
