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 1⅓ cup confectioners' sugar; don't worry about the cookies' filling because it is nothing more than confectioners' sugar.
- Yield: not nearly enough.
- 2 cups pecans, chopped finely
- 2 cups confectioner's sugar, sifted
- 2 cups chocolate wafer crumbs
- ⅔ cup amaretto
- pecans, additional
- 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.
