But - we're supposed to be talking cookies here!
Orange Christmas Balls
1 package Nilla wafers, crushed
1/2 stick of butter , melted
1 C chopped pecans
1 box powdered sugar
6 ounces frozen orange juice concentrate, undiluted
Mix all ingredients together and form into balls. Roll in additional chopped pecans or coconut flakes. Refrigerate until serving.
These reminded me so much of the rum ball recipe, I knew I had to try them! I made them according to the recipe this time, but am already thinking I might try with Cointreau or other orange liqueur next time for a grown-up version of this delicious treat. The adult version will need a grown-up name as well, so I'm thinking Santa's Balls - HA!!
