This is a special little bourbon ball. Instead of doing your average chocolate version, I decided that apple bourbon would be a really nice twist.
Apple Bourbon Balls (makes 25-30)
1 c finely crushed vanilla wafers
1 c finely chopped pecans
1 tsp cinnamon
3 tbs powdered sugar, plus more for coating
4 tbs apple bourbon (recipe follows)
1/4 c honey
1 cinnamon stick (from apple bourbon)
- Mix wafers, pecans, cinnamon, and 3 tbs of powdered sugar in a medium bowl. In a small bowl, mix bourbon and honey. Stir bourbon mixture into wafer mixture until dry ingredients are completely moistened. Pinch off pieces of dough and roll into 1-inch balls. Place on a wax paper-lined baking sheet.
- Serve bourbon balls in mini baking cups. Dust with powdered sugar and grate the cinnamon stick over bourbon balls. Store in airtight containers or refrigerate.
