Bolitas de Nuez/ Pecan Balls

Jump to recipe

It’s cookie season! These are some of my favorite cookies to make and of course to eat. Bolitas de Nuez (AKA Pecan balls) are delicate and delicious, they’re not overly sweet so they’re perfect to eat with a cup of hot tea or coffee.

There are many versions of these cookies but I find this one to be easiest. Inspired by an old Mexican recipe, these cookies are perfect for the season. All you need is a few ingredients, clean hands, and one bowl! Yes, you don’t even have to use your stand mixer. Pretty fantastic, I would say.

Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
