After making an enormous load of sweet treats for tomorrow’s Thing’s Fall Apart project (get excited!), I noticed this recipe for cassava balls.  As mentioned in the book, cassava is a root which is a staple for most African cooking due to its heartiness and adaptability.  As I researched more on the cassava treats I read that they apparently taste like spritz cookies.  I found this to be an ironic connection between such a european cookie and an african staple.
