    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.
