Amaretto Balls Preparation

Process pecans and wafers separately; combine in food processor with sugar. SLOWLY pour in liqueur until mixture forms a ball. You might not need the whole amount, depending on the humidity level. (If mixture gets too wet, put it in the refrigerator — uncovered — overnight to dry out some.) Shape into small balls; roll in additional finely chopped pecans. Store in tightly sealed container. Yield: Not nearly enough. Vicki’s notes: * One Christmas Eve I had to work, but I took a break to pop in a bookstore. They were having an open house, and I managed to snarf a lot of these morsels during those stolen minutes! After Christmas I came back to hunt down the clerk who brought these — my finest bit of sleuthing yet… * These are equally enjoyed and requested by my friends. Although some have tried other liqueurs — including bourbon — the results are never as good as the original! * I substitute Oreos for the wafers, plus use only 1 1/3 C confec sugar; don’t worry about the cookies’ filling because it is nothing more than confec sugar.
