      Really good use of extra orange rum! A lot of effort to make, but very tasty. Great for parties!

      My sister has been making these very popular"cookies" for several years now, but using regular rum. Since Bacardi R (raspberry) was on hand, she used that instead of the orange. All of her co-workers who start confirming that she'll be making these again were apparently thrilled with this new version.
