I’ve finally gotten back into doing the challenges from the Daring Kitchen, which is lucky because this month the challenge was Arancine – Italian dumplings made of risotto and stuffed with a meat sauce and fresh mozzarella. These little buggers were a lot of fun to make, and really filling. It was my first time making a risotto, let alone trying to shape and fry it, but the good news is I only set off the fire alarm the one time!

I’m sorry, that was a terrible word play, but it does lead in to the December challenge from the Daring Baker’s group. This month’s recipe was whoopie pies. when I think whoopie pies I for some reason think southern US. I’m really not sure why, but that’s what pops into my head…and makes me feel like I should pair these with iced tea. Anyway, here’s a fun recipe for soft cakey cookies filled with a marshmallow creme. For a holiday twist these ones were rolled in crushed candy canes.
