It just wouldn't be Christmas without some tassies on the cookie tray! If you want to spice them up a little this year, you might want to give these a try. I've played with my original recipe and they're pretty darned good! You can omit the rum and use extract if desired. Enjoy! CHEERS! (photo from bing images)
