Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the graham cracker crumbs, confectioners' sugar and pecans. Make a well in the center and pour in the orange juice concentrate, corn syrup and melted butter. Mix well by hand until dough forms. Roll into 1 inch balls and roll the balls in confectioners' sugar. Store at room temperature in an airtight container. Put a sheet of waxed paper between layers to prevent sticking.

Though tastey, the cookies need some spice.

These have the most original taste of anything I have ever made! I did put the "dough" in the fridge for 1/2 hr before I made it into balls. Kept my hands coated with 10x sugar while I rolled them. I also double coated with 10x sugar.

A bit time consuming to make. I found it difficult to roll them into balls, and hold the shape. But the taste after setting for a day or two is great.

These are delicious! Very moist, and I love the flavor! I wonder if they can be baked without ruining them? As is, it seems kind of like eating dough.

EASY to prepare. I think frozen lemonade could be used also. Still undecided if I like them or not. very different flavor. Great to make with kids as they require no cooking.

This recipe is one of our favorites for Christmas. We give holiday gift baskets to friends and family, and this cookie is always included. It is easy to make and not too sweet, so it is easily my husband's favorite as he doesn't like sweets all that much. Thanks so much for the recipe!
