I got this recipe from the new "Kosher by Design Short on Time" cookbook; according to that, prep time is 10 minutes and cook time is 12 minutes. It took me a lot longer than that, but it's a lovely cookie nonetheless!
I made these for a Christmas party and they were so pretty on the holiday tray. I love the combination of white chocolate and raspberries. I am posting the recipe as I found it and am not sure of the number of cookies this will produce as written. I made these much smaller than the recipe states so I am estimating the yield.
There are never enough of these! I could bring 12 dozen to my office and one co-worker (who's not a drinker) would eat them all. For those who don't like a strong alcohol flavor this is the way to go. Yumm! It's hard for me to estimate the prep time since I do bits and pieces at different times, so what I've listed is just assembly, not the time for blanching and grinding almonds and crushing cookies.
My family has been making these rum balls for as long as I can remember. We use light cream cheese (which MUST be block style as it is firmer than tub style) to make them lower in fat, and rum extract as that is what we prefer. My mom always let my brother and I cover the rum balls in the chocolate sprinkles which was a highlight of the holiday preparations
My sister's co-worker brought these to a party and they were quite a hit. I don't know where the recipe came from originally.
"Bark" is an artificial chocolate or vanilla candy coating/confectioner's coating used to make a treat called almond bark and can be found at most grocery stores near the chocolate chips.
You can use chocolate chips and white chocolate chips if you don't have almond bark, but I have found that almond bark melts better and is easier to work with.
I got this recipe from my mother and my favorite cookbook, Betty Crocker's Cookbook. These beautiful cookies are always a hit at parties because they look like little bonbons. These cookies are great to make for children, and it's easy to let them help out.
I found this last year in the "Taste of Home" magazine. They were an instant hit and left everyone craving more. Excellent for Valentines especially, but they are good any time of the year. I dip them in the milk chocolate and drizzle white - though the recipe calls for it the other way, you can chose to reverse the amounts between white and milk chocolate chips according to your taste.
I found this at a Creme de Menthe sight! Quick and easy! Great for St. Patty's Day! If you use white creme de menthe Just add green food coloring. But I make them during Christmas!The picture shows them rolled in 1/2 cup pwdered sugar and 1 tablespoon cocoa.
We eat hamentashen on the holiday Purim. They are triangle shaped cookies because Haman had a triangle shaped hat. My dad owns a bakery and is a baker my whole life. He makes these hamentashen every Purim. They are my favorite. When I was in college he always mailed me a box. Now I just make them myself. Hamentashen are traditionally filled with poppyseed filling or prune filling, but my Dad makes other flavors too. Cherry is my favorite, but you can also use apricot jam or use your imagination.
The cutest, delicate mice you ever saw! Everyone remarks about them. I give trays of assorted cookies each year and place them on top. They just make it! It actually is a help when the kids can put on the almonds. I don't remember where I got the recipe, so I gave the best measurements I can recall. It sounds like it could be a Hershey's recipe!? For adults you can strain the cherries, then add rum or almond liquor and soak overnight drain and dry proceed with recipe. Save the rum for drinks.
I saw these demonstrated on on old tv show called "Home & Family." These are so pretty and very simple to prepare. They used a large and a small maple leaf shaped cutter for these cookies. Yield will vary depending upon how much dough you have and how big your cookie cutters are - I guessed the yield based on one roll of purchased sugar cookie dough. Baking time is per cookie sheet. Plan to have several cookie sheets available as the cookies must cool completely before removing from the pans.
