Grandma Millie used to serve these lovely green cookies.  I never understood why anyone liked them until I tried them as an adult this year.  Taking a bit of them and having the Creme De Menthe is guaranteed to take the edge off any family Christmas.  Just hand them a few Creme De Menthe Bon, Bons and see them all relax and get along…. Ok that may be asking too much but here is the recipe for you to experiment with on your family and report back.  They are definitely a conversation piece

Creme De Menthe Bon Bons

1 Cup vanilla Wafer crumbs ( I crunched mine up and then put them through a flour sifter )

3/4 cup chopped pecans

1 cup sifted powdered sugar (kids love using the sifter a great job for them)

2tbs light corn syrup

1/3 cup green creme de menthe

Combined and allow to stand for about 1/2 hour.  Shape using a tsp into SMALL balls and roll in powdered sugar.  I put mine in the fridge for an hour then took them off the pan and put them in a container and separated the layers with wax paper.

In other Christmas news, Poe would like to send out a thank you to The Moore Family and especially his buddy Barb for the smoked pig ears that came in the mail for him as a Christmas Present
