ORANGE BALL COOKIES

Again, this is an old recipe from my days growing up in Southern Indiana many, many years ago.

1 stick oleo
1 lb box powdered sugar
coconut or chopped nuts
1 can (6-oz) frozen orange juice
1 pkg (12-oz) vanilla wafers

Let the oleo soften; add sugar and thawed orange juice.  Crumble wafers by hand or with a rolling pin and mix together.  Make small walnut size ball and roll in coconut and/or nuts.  Place on cookie sheets and let set in refrigerator or freezer for 3 hours.  Place in a large coffee can and store in refrigerator for freezer for keeping.  Makes about 6 dozen.

Optional:  Instead of shaping small balls, make egg shape cookies; refrigerate at least 2 to 3 hours.  Dip in melted chocolate.  Makes wonderful Easter eggs.
