...the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. Geo. Washington Feb. 22, 1732

Bourbon Balls

3 cups ground vanilla wafers (12 oz box)
1 cup ground walnuts
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
3 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/4 - 1/3 cup bourbon (can use rum)
1/4 cup water

Mix well, roll into small balls (about an inch diameter), then roll in more powdered sugar. Chill at least 3 hours, store in an air-tight container. Let set overnight before serving.

These are NO-COOK, so the alcohol does not cook out! I ate them when I was a kid, my kids eat them now. Use your own judgment and serve accordingly.
