merry COOKIES!!

My sister has a holiday tradition of making Christmas Cookies. She didn't do it one year, and there was a mutiny. So now, whether she likes it or not, there MUST BE CHRISTMAS COOKIES. There was a mutiny, of course, because she makes the most brilliant assortment of cookies around.
This year, I came over to help for one day (although it takes at least 3 days to get them all done). Locksley and Melbourne helped.

My favorite recipe is below:

Rum Ball Cookies

Combine in bowl:
1/2 c. sifted confectioners' sugar
2 tbsp. cocoa
1/2 c. finely chopped pecans
3 tbsp. light corn syrup
1/4 c. rum

Mix well. Add 3 cups vanilla wafer crumbs. Mix well. Form into small balls. Roll in confectioners' sugar. Store in tin box.

Dean says, "I waaaaaaant some!" Are you going to kidnap any varieties (not *varieties*, but varieties) to bring to Hicksville???? Tell Jan Dean is begging for them!

I am PRETTY SURE I will be entrusted with a bounty of things (including cookies) to take with me. I'll be a regular Santa Claus.

Ho ho ho Hicksville!
