Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients:
2 Cup(s) Pecans, chopped finely
2 Cup(s) Confectioner's sugar, sifted
2 Cup(s) Chocolate wafer crumbs
2/3 Cup(s) Amaretto
Pecans, additional
Directions:
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. From Gemini's MASSIVE MealMaster
