These are fantastic! The bourbon just shines through.... These were a big hit at a family party. I doubled the recipe(which is just shy of a full box of nilla wafers), and supplemented some graham cracker crumbs to make up the remaining crushed cookies. I rolled these in either confectioner sugar, coconut flakes, or finely chopped pecans.
