We just got back from SF n I just adored the Mexican wedding cookies from Tartine Bakery. We got to Tartine at about 3 in the afternoon and it was just jam packed - the q went out the door and almost to the next shop. There was no parking in any of the nearby streets due to a festival in a nearby park so I got out to order out.
Their morning bun which I heard is superb was sold out by this time so I had to settle for a Rocher (meringue with some nuts) a double chocolate croissant and a mexican wedding cookie. Oooh the mexican wedding cookie with a blue bottle coffee - yum.
Anyways I hunted this recipe down in Martha Stewart Weddings. It was good but not melt in your mouth tender like the Tartine Bakery one. Wonder what I've done wrong. I'm going to scour the web for more recipes.
