the 34 cookies of Christmas: day 27

Our twenty-seventh cookie creation prepared during the 2006 holiday season is one that carries a special meaning. These Kahlua (tm) and almond flavored butter cookies were a favorite of my longtime friend and mentor, Cheryl. We roll these cookies in pink sanding sugar every year in remembrance of her, and to remind us of the importance of breast cancer awareness, treatment, and research. These were one of Cheryl's favorite cookies to eat, although not to prepare as the dough is rather temperamental-- much like Cheryl herself was! They look quite simple, but are complex in flavor and unlike any other cookie we prepare.
