      Title: Amaretto balls
 Categories: Desserts, Christmas, Gainesville
      Yield: 4 Dozen
 
      2 c  Pecans, chopped finely
      2 c  Confectioner's sugar, sifted
      2 c  Chocolate wafer crumbs
    2/3 c  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. 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.
