    Getting ready to start making these and hope they freeze well! Made them last Christmas for my hubby who recalled his grandmother's being oh so good. These were a huge hit!

    I used 3 T Grand Marnier. I don't know how well they age because they were gone the same day. Had friends pop in and they were gone in no time.

    These are divine!! They were hands down the favorite cookie on my holiday cookie tray. I used Grand Marnier instead of Cointreau because I had it on hand (I used about 3 1/2T.) and it worked great. These are definitely better after a couple of days but you had better hide them or they won't last that long. I am not a baker so I appreciated the fact that these just require mixing and rolling. It took me about 45 minutes to roll, but I made one inch balls rather than the larger size recommended in the recipe and got about 40 cookies. These will be included on my Christmas cookie tray from now on. Thank you for posting BarbryT!

    Excellent - I used the 4 T Cointreau recommended, but they ended up being a little soggy and the powdered sugar turned icky when I rolled them. I think next time I also need to make the balls smaller.

    I doubled the recipe and took this to a potluck. The orange balls were terrific, however, the pot luck was a way out of town and not too many showed up for it. But there is always a good to everything. I now have orange balls in my freezer for future enjoyment. Thanks BarbryT
