No-Bake Lemon Drops

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, stir together the crushed cookies, the 1 cup powdered sugar, the almonds, and the 1/2 cup crushed candies. In a small bowl, stir together corn syrup, milk, and melted butter. Stir the corn syrup mixture into the cookie mixture until well combined.
  2. Shape cookie mixture into 1-inch balls. In a small bowl, combine the 1/3 cup powdered sugar and the 1 tablespoon crushed candies. Roll balls in powdered sugar mixture. Place on a large baking sheet or tray.
  3. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours before serving. Roll balls again in powdered sugar mixture just before serving. Makes about 36 cookies.

From the Test Kitchen

*

Place lemon drops in a heavy resealable plastic bag. Use a meat mallet or a rolling pin to coarsely crush the lemon drops. Transfer coarsely crushed lemon drops to a food processor. Cover and process until finely crushed.

Place cookies in a single layer in an airtight container; cover. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze up to 3 months.

For Marla's version, replace the ground almonds with ground hazelnuts.

Hillary Kerner, did you finely crush the cookies first and THEN measure 2 cups worth from the crushed cookies?  Hope this helps.Janis S.   TheCookieMomster

These are so beautiful. I love that they are no bake. What a time saver during the busy holiday season!

Just tried to make these and they did not work at all! I followed the ingredients exactly but there is no way they will roll into a ball, what I've got is a mess that just oozes and sticks to my hands...trying to chill it in the fridge for a bit and hoping it'll roll into balls then.
