You might also know these as Mexican Wedding Cookies. I’ve heard a few other names for them too. But in our family they’ve always been known as “sandies”. This recipe from my Grandmother, the grandma that grew up in Mexico, so these are authentic and AMAZING.
These cookies have many names - Sandies, Mexican wedding cookies, Russian tea cakes, Snowballs and even Italian wedding cookies! They are basically a pecan shortbread cookie rolled in powdered sugar and they are delicious!
