Quick and easy frosting for your favorite sugar cookies; color as desired!

Brandy or Rum Balls

Rating: 4.5 stars 53
These brandy balls are an excellent dessert to bring for the holidays. You can use either brandy or rum. These do need some time to set up so it is best to make them the night before. If you don't care for walnuts, the balls can be rolled in confectioners' sugar or cocoa powder.

Burrebrede (Scottish Shortbread)

Rating: 4 stars 20
This is a medieval Scottish shortbread recipe. It has been a holiday favorite for my family and friends for years. The shortbread keeps very well in an airtight tin or tightly wrapped in tinfoil.

'When co-workers hear I've baked these melt-in-your-mouth cookies, they make a special trip to my floor to sample them. Best of all, these crisp, buttery treats can be made in no time.'
