Yes, rum balls: It’s Christmas cookie time!
I had some vanilla wafers left over from making orange balls (which I personally can’t have Christmas without), so I made half a batch of rum balls. Rum balls!
No, I don’t drink anymore, but eating a cookie doesn’t really count as “drinking.” Right? . . . Okay, okay, I know—too close for comfort. But other people will enjoy them!
I used my Grandma Schroeder’s recipe, which I’ll simply present to you via a photograph of the recipe itself, which is in her handwriting.
Note that her recipe calls for “hootch.” —HOOTCH!
I measured out the rum very carefully. (Bwah-ha-ha!) And if you can’t quite read the recipe, I recommend sampling a bit of the rum and trying again!
There are more cookies still to come—the lebkuchen and the springerles!
So . . . more soon.
