Mexican Wedding Cookies

I vividly remember spending many hours in the kitchen with my grandmother growing up, typically standing on a dining room chair so that I could clearly see what was going into measuring cups, bowls, and cookie sheets.

One of my Gram’s classic cookie recipes was this simple six-ingredient treat. Sharing this recipe is like sharing a piece of my heart and my childhood.

<span-key>2 sticks</span-key> <span-value>butter</span-value> <span-key>½ cup</span-key> <span-value>chopped pecans</span-value> <span-key>2 cups</span-key> <span-value>flour</span-value> <span-key>¼ tsp</span-key> <span-value>salt</span-value> <span-key>1 tsp</span-key> <span-value>vanilla</span-value> <span-key>½ cup</span-key> <span-value>confectioners’ sugar</span-value>




Preheat oven to 350°F/170°C.
Soften butter in microwave.
Mix butter, pecans, flour, salt, and vanilla in a bowl until a dough forms.
Roll dough into balls smaller than a walnut.
Lightly roll each ball in confectioners’ sugar until covered.
Bake on a greased cookie sheet for 10 minutes.</span-p>

Cook It Up:
An Upwork

A Foreword from the
Kitchen of Hayden Brown,
Upwork CEO

I deeply treasure that time around the table with my kids and loved ones. In our household, our kitchen table is a gathering place to share a meal, enjoy each other’s company, reflect on the day and laugh together.

With ‘Cook It Up,’ our Upwork Family Belonging Community has assembled a wonderful collection of recipes that celebrate the rich diversity of cultures we represent at Upwork. I truly enjoyed the personal memories that connect these dishes to the team members who shared them. This is a fun, approachable and sometimes touching look behind the “work curtain” that’s helped me — and I hope will help you — get to know our team even better.

I invite you to take a moment to browse the stories and recipes when you are looking for inspiration, a new way to connect with your colleagues, or just want to try something new. Most of all, I invite you to participate in the celebration of food, family, and life found here in Cook It Up.
