If you're looking for a simple but extremely flavorful cookie recipe...this one is for you! These lovely sherry truffles are insanely easy. All you need to do is combine all of the ingredients and roll them into a ball...then roll that ball into your favorite topping. This is a great alternative to the traditional chocolate truffle or the graham cracker truffles that you may already be used to.
One of our loyal customers shared this recipe with us and we've been making it ever since. And...if you happen to be gluten free, feel free to substitute your favorite gluten free wafer in order to make this a gluten free recipe.
2 cups finely chopped pecans
14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
2 tbls Bickford Sherry Flavor
4 oz finely shredded sweetened coconut
4 oz finely chopped candied cherries
4 oz finely chopped candied pineapple
11 oz box of vanilla wafers (crushed)
Finely chopped pecans
Finely shredded coconut
In a large bowl, combine crushed vanilla wafers, pineapple, cherries, coconut and pecans. In a small bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk and Bickford Sherry Flavor.
Using your cleaned hands, add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients until they're combined and can be pressed together to make a ball.
Using a tablespoon or a small cookies scoop, measure small amounts of the dough and roll into a ball. Set aside on a lined plate or baking sheet.
After shaping the dough into balls, toll them in the topping of your choice.
Alternatives: In addition to rolling this dough into individual truffles, you can also create a cookie roll and cut the roll into individual cookies.
Store these lovely treats in the freezer and snack on them for weeks to come!
