About this Article

This year I decided to riff on one of my favorite cookies, the Mexican wedding cookie for Easter. The delicious simplicity of these treats begs for a burst of lemon, and by adding a healthy dose of lemon zest, these nutty shortbread-like cookies become a "lemon wedding cookie." The zest adds a delicate lemon flavor that I find is a perfect balance to the richness of the butter and the pecans.
