Italian Wedding Cookies
These cookies are traditionally made in my family every Christmas. We call them Italian Wedding Cookies, although it's funny, I have never seen them at a wedding. I have also heard them referred to as Mexican Wedding Cookies and Russian Tea Cakes. Whatever you call them, they are fabulous.
