1 lg. box vanilla wafer, rolled fine (or whirled in blender)
1 box confectioner' s sugar
1 1/2 c. pecans, chopped (or you can substitute coconut)
1 stick (1/2 c.) margarine
Food coloring to color coconut, optional
1 sm. (6 oz.) can orange juice concentrate

1. Cream margarine and sugar. Add orange juice concentrate, thawed; mix. Add the cookie crumbs and half of the chopped pecans to the mixture. Form dough into small balls. 2. Roll balls in the remaining chopped nuts ( 3/4 cupful); you may prefer to use coconut shreds instead. Mixture will be very sticky, but roll in the nuts right away, because cookies will dry fast and the coating will not adhere well otherwise. 3. If desired, you may color coconut red or green.
