Emily and I split the cookie making duties this year. She wanted to make Buckeyes, but balked at adding paraffin to the dipping chocolate. As a result, the Buckeyes are half-naked.
Almond lace cookies were new this year, from a recipe in Newsday. I taco-folded some of them, but thin, flat cookies are preferable.
Pecan Puffs have 1/4 cup of chia meal.
Meringues are made with chopped mint chocolate bar. They won the prize this year!
