Mexican Wedding  Cookies

Mexican Wedding Cookies go by several different names;
Pecan Fingers, Snowball Cookies and Crescent Moon Cookies.

My Grandma made these cookies every holiday season.
She called them Pecan Fingers.
Pecan finger cookies have always been a favorite of mine.
Sweet, buttery, nutty and melt in your mouth delicious.

Not only are these cookies easy to make,
most people have the five ingredients on hand,
needed to make these delicious cookies.
