This week's treasure pulled from the Recipe Box will give you a jump start on holiday baking! (I always find it important to try out at least 2 or 3 batches of a new recipe before I feel it fit for holiday giving, especially when there is rum involved...)
1 c. crushed vanilla wafers
1 c. powdered sugar
2 Tbsp. cocoa
1/2 Tbsp. Karo syrup
1/4 c. rum or bourbon
Mix all together, form into balls and shake in powdered sugar.
Now what could be easier than that? Let me know if you give them a try!
In more food news, I just mixed up my first batch of dough from this book:
and will be reviewing the results once I bake up my first loaf. Is there anything better than the smell of baking bread?
Also in food news, look for my review of this cookbook: (which just hit #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list, how AMAZING is that?) in the next few days. It's a winner, and you definitely need to add it to your cookbook collection.
