I’ve just been informed that my father has made his first batch of rum balls and other cookies. He said they are pretty good, but not quite as strong as late Grandma Cole’s “Eat two of these and get a DUI” rumballs. We think in her later years she was either forgetting the recipe or adding the rum twice. One batch, I swear, you would eat one and you could see a vapor trail when you exhaled.
None of us complained, though.
