Recipe Swap Thursday-Christmas Cookie Edition!

Today I am sharing an old family favorite-tutus (also known as chocolate balls). I can remember my Mom making these every year. I would love coming home from school seeing the kitchen table COVERED in tutus, freshly glazed, with the excess glaze all over the table-YUM!


4 C flour
1 ½ C granulated sugar
2 T (heaping) cocoa
2 T (heaping) baking powder
5 large eggs
1 C Crisco
2 T vanilla
1 C chopped walnuts
1 C chocolate chips (more if desired)
milk, as needed

Mix all ingredients and roll into balls the size of a quarter. Bake 425° for 7-8 minutes. (As these get larger upon baking, you may want to do a few to see how big you want them). Cool and frost. (Frosting: powdered sugar, melted butter, and milk).

Now, it's your turn! Grab the button on the sidebar to link back to me, and leave a link to your post in the comment section.

I have put my recipe for coconut ice up. This is a slice rather than a cookie but we have a lot of slices here at Christmas.

Ok...those look good, Therese! I'm going to be baking more and more over the next few weeks....I think I'll try this one.

Here is my entry for this week....

Hi Therese,
I am sharing a Diabetic Fruit Cake, as we don't make cookies in our home for Christmas. I hope that you don't mind.

Have a great weekend,

Therese- I'll get the Kolachy recipe from my mom. You'll have it by the time we get together for the annual book club fiesta!
