Last year was an epic fail on my part. Rum ball cookies that looked like dirt balls and tasted like shit balls.
It's stressful. There is some tough competition at this event. But after one or two
So all your Julia and Martha wanna bees, what's the treat that can't be beat?*
*While technically there is no competition involved here, I consider our cookie to be a winner if 1) I don't cut myself with any sharp implements during the preparation; 2) the stove/house does not catch on fire during the baking; 3) no one contracts a food-borne illness from our creation during the party.
