    Cinnamom in Illinois's Note:

    A Christmas treat from way back, this is as close as I think I'm going to get to Mom's Famous Bourbon Balls, which we kids were NOT allowed to have. Strictly grown-up stuff, we were told -- mostly for the 20-plus special baskets for business associates Mom would put together every year. While sometimes we were enlisted to help assemble, we had to be older than twelve to sample ONE. Did we really have such patience then? If you have patience now, you can make these two weeks ahead of time and store tightly covered between sheets of waxed paper in a tin, old-school-style. Prep time includes time to crush wafers and grind nuts.

    1. 1
      In a large bowl, fluff 1 cup confectioners' sugar with the dry ingredients, and then drizzle and mix in corn syrup.
    2. 2
      Sprinkle some confectioners' onto a large sheet of waxed paper.
    3. 3
      With clean, sugar-dusted hands, shape mixture into 1-inch balls, and then roll in confectioners' sugar.
    4. 4
      Store as above; can be individually wrapped in small squares of cello or plastic wrap. This will intensify the flavors.

      Sound great, however, I guess you make the balls and drink the bourbon hoping that no one will notice you never added the bourbon. For those following the recipe, add the bourbon with the corn syrup and then form the balls. Then if you are like me, pour another 3 ounces of bourbon and also goes good with the fruits of your efforts. Merry Christmas!!!! Mark
