So these are straight up Mexican Wedding Cookies, but I don't want to call them that. They've got all the markings of the classic recipe: almond meal, cinnamon, a little citrus zest and most importantly in our line of work, people can't resist gobbling them up. But I must take pause..... ladies, how many bottles of red nail polish are named Red Nail Polish? Hmmm, precisely zero. We accept names like "Bad Romance" and "It's Raining Men" whose accompanying hues are all subject to interpretation, but yet, over here at Heirloom I am still calling a Mexican wedding cookie a Mexican Wedding Cookie. How about something a little more inspired like "Ox-Eye Daisies" or "Golden Marguerites"?
Suggestions would be appreciated.
