Here we are past Thanksgiving on the home stretch towards the end of the year and a variety of winter holidays. And for Sunday Supper, I am posting a cookie recipe that reminds me of old days, being based on the old rum balls recipe.
It is very easy and no-bake. And although it puts together fast, it is best to plan ahead since these can be a bit boozy at first, but mellow as they rest in the refrigerator for up to a couple of weeks. And of course being boozy, probably not the best choice for little kids, but for something for an office holiday party this can be just the thing.
This recipe was inspired by the traditional Rum Balls recipe by Emeril LaGasse.
So get ready to enjoy this cookie exchange (of recipes) so you can easily fill your holiday cookie jar!
