Christmas Hazelnut Balls
Author/Submitted by: Jo Anne Merrill
1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl except the confectioner's
sugar. Use a large wooden spoon or your hands to mix thoroughly.
2. Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes -- a very important step.
3. Form dough into 1-1/4-inch balls. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased
cookie sheet. Bake in preheated 375-degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until
set but not brown. Do not overcook.
4. Let stand 1 minute in pan then remove to wire rack. Cool until
barely warm. Roll in sifted confectioners sugar. Cool completely, then
just before serving, roll again in the confectioners sugar.
Yield: about 20 balls. Do not make them too large or they will not cook
