Be prepared to be asked for this recipe. It is a favorite and we are often asked to bring "the wings" to many gatherings. Crunchy and meaty with just the right amount of finger licking spice. The sauce is really, really good and can be used for grilled meats too!

Good Morning!  I just added Fudgie Buttons to our cookie repertoire.  I love small cookies with huge flavors.  I made these yesterday, they are good-especially warm, but I  tweaked the recipe a bit more this morning, adding more chocolate and less sugar.  I will not have a chance to try my tweaked recipe today because I am experimenting with Cherry Snowballs now.  Tap here for the newer tweaked recipe >>> Fudgie Buttons

Update:  the cherry snowball dough is resting and I just finished making my favorite holiday cookie- Pizzelles- our recipe is ridiculously delicate and not a good traveler, none the less an elegant favorite.  Tap for recipe here >>  PIZZELLES

Another Update:  The cherry snowballs turned into "cherry puffs".  Good but not "website worthy".  When I get it right- I have some ideas- I will post the recipe- probably in time for Valentine's day. 🙂
