Lora's Bourbon Balls
We attended John's 50th birthday party a few weeks ago, and our friends Lora and Rob presented him with the most delicious Bourbon Balls. As you can tell from his birthday present pile, Bourbon Balls were a perfect idea.
Lora happily shared her recipe with me and I made some for Christmas.
I believe I have two brothers-in-law who might enjoy them.
I liked 3 things about this recipe. First - they weren't covered in powdered sugar that get all over the clothes. Second - I had all the ingredients on hand except the Vanilla Wafers. And C - simple & delicious!
You crush a box of Nilla Wafers and a cup of pecans.
I did this in the blender and it worked well.
Then you add in other ingredients, including Makers Mark bourbon.
Roll them into balls. This recipe makes 4 dozen.
Then roll those into granulated sugar.
Resist the urge to taste
any more than one and pop in an air-tight container for 3 days before serving or sharing.
