For song of bird, and hum of bee;
For all things fair we hear or see,

In 1964, King became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for his work to end racial segregation and racial discrimination through civil disobedience and other non-violent means. His non-violent protests met with success as Congress passed civil rights laws (1964) and voting rights laws (1965). King’s friendship with President John F. Kennedy also helped his cause. By the time of his death in 1968, he had refocused his efforts on ending poverty and opposing the Vietnam War. King was assassinated on April 4, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day was established as a U.S. national holiday in 1986. It is observed on the third Monday of January each year, near the time of King's birthday. (Source: Wikipedia).

The main aim of this charity single was to raise funds to help famine-relief efforts in Africa, specially Ethiopia, where around one million people died during the country's 1984-1985 famine. Since its release, "We Are the World" has raised over $63 million for humanitarian causes. Ninety percent of the money was pledged to African relief, both long (birth control and food production) and short term. The remaining 10 percent of funds was earmarked for domestic hunger and homeless programs in the US. (Information taken and adapted from the Wikipedia).

50 gr walnuts or peanuts
100 gr sugar
100 gr butter
250 gr flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vainilla flavoured sugar
Small pretzel twists
Red and brown m&m's
Pre-heat oven to 180 celsius. Grate watnuts in the Thermomix, speed 5 for a few seconds. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix, speed 4-5, until the mixture is blended. Place the mixture on the table and make circles, I used a glass to make the circles. Press two pretzels into the top of each circle to form Rudolph's antlers. Make sure that 1/2 of the pretzel is into the cookie to ensure that it will stay put when cooked. Press two chocolate chips into the cookie for the eyes, and press one red M&M into the cookie for the nose. Bake about 15-20 minutes, or until browned around the edges. Let cool, and enjoy! These are wonderful for class or Christmas parties, and great in a tin as a gift!
I did the mixture with the Thermomix, but you can also do it without it.
