My auntie Rosie is the reason why I have a love of food and the person who taught me culinary art. She can whip up anything with whatever is inside the fridge at that particular moment and it'll taste beyond amazing. She has a magic touch for spicing things up. But she’s also a whiz at baking. One day she decided to make Mexican wedding cookies and invited me to watch. As she went through the process, I remember it felt like I was watching some mad scientist creating their best work and I was lucky enough to be witnessing it firsthand. This is the recipe I learned that day. Have fun creating these “mad” cookies and make sure to stuff your face with them for the holidays! MORE + LESS -
