Test post - playing with the new SeMagic. 

Have a picture of Brandy Snaps, which I made for my Christmas Cookie Party this weekend.

Those look so delicious.

They weren't hard. I filled them with vanilla whipped cream instead of the brandy one in the recipe link. I didn't have a spoon with the right-size handle, so I cut a hunk of 3/4inch PVC pipe and covered it in foil to form them.

The only downside is that they entirely melt after about 5 hours at room temperature.

Are you making fruitcake this year?

I'm not. I did two for the party with a new recipe (http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/chocolate-cherry-berry-fruitcake-recipe), but that was it. I did something different this year - your box will probably show up next week. ;)

Yay! You're awesome as usual. You are too good to me. I am very lucky to have you as a friend.

I am so tempted to try these (sans brandy, of course). Nom-licious!

You could easily replace the brandy with any sort of flavoring. You could even leave it out entirely, I suspect. The filling I used was just whipped cream with vanilla added to it.

Perzackley. It's obviously totally optional in the whipped cream, and I could always put in vanilla, or rum flavour, or some such in the cookies.
