Gluten Free Mexican Wedding Cookies 

(or Snowball Cookies)

This is a Quick And Easy Bake!

Bake Time: 16 Minutes 

Oven Temperature:350℉


1 cup salted Butter, softened 

⅔ cup Confectioners’ Sugar

2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract 

1 tsp ground Cinnamon

½ tsp Salt 

2 cups Gluten Free Flour 

+Confectioners’ sugar for dipping the cookies in 

Special Equipment: 

Stand/hand mixer (not necessary but helpful)

Baking pan



  1. In a stand mixer or bowl, cream together the Butter, Sugar, and Vanilla Extract using a stand/hand mixer for about 3 minutes until light and fluffy like the consistency of whipped cream (or by hand but that will take a bit more work). 
  2. Add to the creamed butter mix the salt and cinnamon and slowly add in the flour 1 cup at a time. Using a spatula mix until all combined. Note: the batter will be a crumbly consistency but this is totally normal since there is no real binder in the mix. 
  3. Preheat the oven to 350℉
  4. Lightly oil a pan and set aside. Form small balls (about a spoonful size or 2tbsp) with the dough and place on the pan. 
  5. Bake for 16 minutes
  6. Once cookies are done baking, add ½-1 cup confectioners’ sugar in a bowl. After about 3 minutes out of the oven completely coat each cookie in confectioners’ sugar. Coating the cookies with confectioners’ sugar while they are still warm will help insure the sugar sticks to the cookie. Once the cookies are all coated in sugar, let them cool. [You can coat the cookies a second time if you want but it is not necessary]. 
  7. You have now finished making the yummy Mexican Wedding Cookies! Happy Baking! 

This is a delicious melt in your mouth buttery soft cookie bake! It is fast and easy to make and sure to become a favorite! This was a new bake for me that instantly became a family favorite (#1 on the baking charts as of now)! After about a day or 2 the cookies can take on a coconut taste that is SO good!  

I hope you all enjoy this cookie bake! Happy Baking!
