These are delicious! Using a food processor is a must (IMHO)--I just wish I'd known the tip about using wet hands to roll the balls before making the recipe. :-) I rolled mine in unsweetened, shredded coconut and I'll definitely be making them again!
These are fab! I did not need the liqueur. Using wet hands is the key to rolling these out successfully and not having it all over your hands. I did use regular white sugar instead of the confectioners as I think it is prettier (and a lot less messy). Thanks for the recipe!
These are excellent! I've been making them ever since I got that issue of Saveur. If you coarsely chop the almonds, then put them in the food processor with the dried fruit, it chops them up finely, without gumming up the processor. I do it in three small batches. Then, I microwave the honey (til runny) and add the spices and orange zest to that so it mixes with the fruit/nut mixture easier. I put these in goodie bags for my friends. I always stick some in the back of the fridge to find after Christmas, just for me. Thanks for posting this!
