Preston would love these.  If I don't have time to make them this year I will definitely put it in the file for next year!

Ingredients:

  • stick (1/4 lb.) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar 
  • egg yolk 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups flour 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • Green sugar
  • long strands black licorice, cut into 1-inch lengths
  • 36 white-chocolate chips 
  • 36 brown mini M&Ms

Preparation:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Cream butter and sugar in a mixer. Mix in yolk and vanilla, then flour and salt, well. Roll into balls (size of a large marble). Coat in green sugar. Bake on 2 baking sheets for 12 minutes; rotate pans halfway through.
  • Remove from oven. Lightly indent centers. Push licorice "eyelashes" into cookies; bake for 2 minutes. Push tip of whitechocolate chips into centers. Bake for 3 minutes. Immediately press a mini M&M in center of each chip. Cool.
