I've taken the liberty of translating this recipe. This is a really good pastry that is very easy to make. The units is in metric because I don't know the other one. Black ball cookies: 75 grams of butter 1.5 decilitre sugar 1 tablespoon vanilla sugar 4 decilitre rolled oats 2 tablespoons of cacao 3 tablespoons of strong cold coffee Mix everything together, when it's a dough, simply make balls, then roll the balls in pearl sugar. No cooking is required and it's a great tasting pastry to eat with your coffee. ------ Another similar pastry is the rice balls: Here is the translated recipe: 100 gram butter 1 decilitre sugar 2 tablespoons of vanilla sugar 2 decilitre of rolled oats 2 decilitre puff rice Simply mix the ingredients, add half of the puff rice to the mix, then make a dough. Make balls and roll the balls in the rest of the puff rice. --- I don't know if you have all ingredients where you happen to be, but if you do I highly recommend making some black balls or rice balls, they are delicious. If anyone wants to change the units so Americans and Liberians can understand I welcome it. Edit: Ok, I see the name was changed, it's understandable since it's an offensive word. Anyhow, if you are going to search for the pastry they are called "n-word balls"
