Egyptian butter cookies

When I was single my landlords were from Egypt. Everything she cooked was amazing. My favorite thing was these melt in your mouth butter cookies but for the life of me I can't remember how she made them. I know they had very little ingredients. Maybe there was butter, confectioners sugar and flour? Maybe half butter half crisco?? I know they were rolled in confectioners sugar when they were done and they were soooooo good. I am dying for the recipe.

Welcome to Discuss Cooking Deeda. I think you are talking about a cookie that is known by many names. I know them as Mexican Wedding cookies, without nuts they are called Melting Moments.

We called them Russian Teacakes!

Also you may want to try googling Corn Starch Meltaways.

I like the ones made with lime zest and lime juice or lemon zest and lemon juice.
