JOINING the Bowyers FOR A GREAT COOKIE such an opportune time...I can have some new cookies to keep out through the Holidays.  My selection is an EASY PEASY...I like easy peasy, don't you?!

Orange Bites
1 box of vanilla wafers - usually 12oz

1 6oz can of frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed

1 box of powdered sugar - 16oz

1/2 cup butter

1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

1 cup toasted, shredded coconut (optional)

Crush the vanilla wafers until fine.
Mix vanilla wafers, orange juice, powdered sugar, butter, and chopped pecans.

Shape the mixture into walnut-size balls.  Store the bites in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator. (If you like toasted coconut, you can roll them in some coconut before storing.)

Makes approx. 5 dozen cookies.

So easy - yet so delicious!

This is a new one for me! I'm going to have to try it -- it would be great for when the cookie craving hits and it's in the 90s -- no need to turn my oven on. LOVE it! Thanks for sharing :)
