Viennese Coffee Balls
- In a large mixing bowl combine crushed cookies, the 1-1/4 cups powdered sugar, the nuts, cocoa powder, coffee crystals, and cinnamon. Add brewed espresso, coffee, or water, using just enough to moisten.
- Form into 1-1/4-inch balls. Roll generously in the 1/2 cup powdered sugar. Place on a sheet of waxed paper and let stand until dry (about 1 hour). Store in a tightly covered container at room temperature for up to 3 days. Before serving, roll again in powdered sugar, if desired. Makes about 30 cookies.
