I was forwarded this recipe in an email from a woman whose daughter has been missing for a few years. In those circumstances it usually takes a long time for someone to see the funny side of anything. She has been in a need of a laugh, after so much heart ache, and someone gave her a recipe for it.

Christmas Tequila Cookies

1 cup dark brown sugar
1 cup (two sticks) butter
1 cup granulated sugar
4 large eggs
2 cups dried fruit (cranberries or raisins)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans
2 cups all purpose flour
1 bottle Jose Cuervo Tequila (silver or gold, as desired)

First, sample the Cuervo to check quality.
Take a large bowl.
Check the Cuervo to be sure it is of the highest quality.
Pour another ounces in a measuring cup and drink.
Turn on the electric mixer.
Beat one cup of the butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add one teaspoon sugar.
Beat again. At this point, it is best to make sure the Cuervo is still OK.

Try another 4 ounces, just in case.
Turn off the mixerer thingy.
Break two eggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit,
picking the frigging fruit off the floor.
Mix on the turner.
If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers, just pry it loose with a

Sample the Cuervo to check for tonsisticity.
Next, sift 2 cups of salt or something. Check the Jose Cuervo.
Now shift the lemon juice and whatever you can find.
Greash the over.
Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over.
Don't forget to beat off the turner.

Finally, throw the bowl through the window.
Finish the Cose Juervo and make sure to put the stove in the dishwasher.

It's a good one! I've also seen something similar with christmas cake and a bottle of scotch.

Hope it all turns out in smiles for your friend.

I like the Betty Crocker Rum Ball recipe myself. Actually, it's always a big hit, but it's a pain to mash up a ton of vanilla wafers.

I'm saving your recipe, however. I just sent it to all of my friends and family.
