Travel Log 12-7: Because Everyone Should Have Balls For Yuletime!

Domestic Witch is having her annual Got Balls? party and because lately I've been baking up a storm and NotHannah at Diving Women has launched her Cookie Witch site I figured I would list my recipe for Santa Baby's. So her you go-

Santa Baby Cookie Balls

Ingredients:
      1/2 cup margarine
      1/2 cup brown sugar
      1 teaspoon vanilla
      1-1/2 cups flour
      1/8 teaspoon salt
      20 to 25 maraschino cherries
      2 tablespoons juice from maraschino cherries (optional but I like the flavor, not that I'm a maraschino junkie or anything...DON'T JUDGE ME!..ahem)
      20 to 25 chocolate chips , plus 1 cup chocolate chips

Oven Temp: 350 Degrees Fahrenheit (does anyone know how to do the little circle thing for degrees on a keyboard cause without spell checker I can't spell Fahrenheit)

Instructions:
           1. Cream sugar and margarine well. Add vanilla, flour and salt. Mix well. If the dough seems dry,     
               add up to 2 tablespoons of the maraschino cherry juice.
           2. Stuff each cherry with a chocolate chip, then wrap in 1 teaspoon dough. (at this point it is advisable
               to appease the pygmies doing their war dance around your feet with either a cherry or a chocolate
               chip- or that may just be at my house)
           3. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool.
           4. Melt 1 cup chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler over low heat or in the microwave, and dip
               top of cookies in melted chocolate.

Now grab a couple and eat them quick before the pygmies get the spears!! (yet again that may only be at my house.....)

  2. If you're on Windows, hold down the Alt key and then press 0, 1, 7, 6 in order on the keypad on the far right of your keyboard. If you're on a Mac, hit Shift, Option(Alt), and 8 at the same time.
