OK, I am tore on this recipe, so I'm giving it 3.5 stars. It was super easy to prepare and smells great, tastes fantastic (sweet/tart flavor). However, as written, the recipe was not firm enough for me to roll into balls, and I actually halved the melted butter to begin with. I ended up adding 1/2-3/4 cups extra confectioners' sugar and kneaded that in really well; that worked! I rolled into balls, but for some reason the nuts would NOT stick to them even though the dough was sticky enough to have stuff adhere to it (not the recipes fault). I was getting so frustrated that I just dumped about 1 cup of the nuts into the mixture, kneaded them in, rolled into balls and rolled those into orange colored sanding sugar. They ended up being very good, but very sweet, which is fine w/ me...candy is supposed to be sweet! All in all I really liked the flavor of these and plan to try them again sometime, maybe rolling in finely crushed vanilla wafer crumbs or something. Thanks for posting. :)
