On Saturday I gathered with my daughter, my sister Wendy and several other women for the third year in a row to bake Christmas cookies - one of my newly treasured holiday season events.
My cookie is pictured above - a rich-buttery-not-too-sweet base, topped off with a high quality chocolate non-pareil (straight from Chicago's Blommer's Chocolate Factory). I package 2 dozen of them in little red bags, add a sticker that says something along the lines of "Happy Holidays with thanks and love, Susan" and hand them out to friends and acquaintances.
At one point during the bake-a-thon, the discussion turned to what to call these cookies....I have never had an official name for them, so we round-tabled it and decided upon "Suzie-Q's"....but now post-decision...a Suzie-Q should only be two dark chocolate cake parts slapped together with a white-unidentifiable-but-still-tasty-filling.
Which leaves me in need of a name for these one-bite-wonders. My only slightly creative name to throw into the ring on this Monday morning is "Butter Buttons"....
but I am relying on my blogger friends to be more creative and witty...any thoughts?
And for the first time ever...there will be a PRIZE for the selected name...a little red bag filled with delight to be delivered either in person or via postal service for the winner!
Start those creative minds a rolling....and as a footnote FYI to Moe...the name "Nipple Cookies" has already been dismissed.
keep it clean...its christmas
