Mexican Wedding Cookies are also identical to Russian Tea Cakes/Cookies and Pecan Sandies. The name is regional, but the concept is the same: a shortbread made with finely ground nuts, butter, sugar, and flour. Historically, they originated out of the Middle East in the middle ages as nuts were plentiful and accessible to a good many people then.
