Makes 30 cookies
1 cup butter room temperature
1/2 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup powdered sugar for coating
1/4 tsp salt
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 pinch nutmeg
1 cup ground almonds
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Combine butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, salt, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ground almonds to form your dough. Roll into 1-inch balls.
Bake for eight minutes, until golden on the bottom.
Let the cookies cool for a few minutes only, and then toss in the remaining ¾ cup powdered sugar. You want the cookies to still be warm, or the sugar will not stick.
Voila! Simple to make, but so delicious. For a real treat, serve with a cup of Mexican hot cocoa or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
