Heavenly Mexican Wedding Cakes

1 cup Oil
1/2 cup Powdered sugar
2 tsp. Vanilla
1/4 tsp. Salt
2 Tbsp. Cornstarch 
2 cups Flour (any combination you like, although I like to use freshly ground Soft White Wheat)
1 1/2 cup chopped Walnuts (finely chopped)

Mix oil, powdered sugar, vanilla, salt, and cornstarch together.  Once mixed well, add flour and the walnuts. Mix well. Dough should be very stiff.  On a cookie sheet, make into little balls about the size of a ping-pong ball. Bake at 350 for 10-15 mins.  Makes around 22. After cooled slightly, roll in powdered sugar and ENJOY! 
NOTE: If you don't have powdered sugar, you can make your own in the blender, actually quite well. 1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar makes about 2 cups powdered. Add a couple tablespoons of cornstarch and blend in your blender on high speed until powdered. Works amazingly well! :)          


  1. This sounds so good I want to try it! :-)

  2. This looks delicious!! =) And by the way, I like the subtitle a lot... "The Joys of Healthy Living..."

  3. They really are good - you just have to practice self control when eating them - it's hard to stop! :) :) I guess it's a good thing that we don't make these very often - we might become... portly! :D :D And... that wouldn't be good...!

  4. These are a Christmas tradition in our family! We call them snowballs. My grandma make them every year. However, her hands are getting tired. I think I might take up the tradition this year. ;) They are definitely delicious!!
