Margarita Balls

Recipe by ReeLani

There are never enough of these! I could bring 12 dozen to my office and one co-worker (who's not a drinker) would eat them all. For those who don't like a strong alcohol flavor this is the way to go. Yumm! It's hard for me to estimate the prep time since I do bits and pieces at different times, so what I've listed is just assembly, not the time for blanching and grinding almonds and crushing cookies.

Made these for a cookie swap, and they were a real hit! I used lemon marmalade instead of orange, and then added about a tablespoon of triple sec, but that's the only change I made. I ended up making much smaller cookies, and had over 5 dozen. For Christmas, it adds a festive touch to roll the cookies in red and green colored sugar - very, very nice! Thanks, Reelani, for such a delicious, no-bake recipe!
