Join the 2006 virtual cookie exchange! My contribution is one of my all time fave things to eat. In fact, in my food pyramid, booze soaked food is a staple.
my good ole rum balls:
1 1/2 cups vanilla wafer crumbs (about 50 cookies)
1/4 cup Bacardi dark rum 80 proof
1/4 cup honey
8 oz. (2 cups) ground walnuts
confectioner's (powder) sugar
Combine all ingredients, except sugar, blend thoroughly. Shape into
small balls about 1 inch in diameter. Roll in sugar. Store in
tightly covered container. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen.
I keep them in the refrigerator if I'm storing them (they'll stay
for months). I think they taste better after a few days when the
ingredients get to meld. Food processor or rolling pin can be used
to crush cookies.
PS: I always use more booze than the recipe calls for.
