Almond Fruit Balls 
Servings: 24 balls

Ingredients
1 cup whole natural almonds, toasted * 
1 package (6 ounces) mixed dried fruit bits 
1 1/2 teaspoons honey 
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg 
1 1/2 tablespoons orange-flavored liqueur

Place almonds in bowl of food processor fitted with steel blade; process until finely chopped. Add fruit, honey, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pulse on and off a few times, then process to make a rough paste. Add liqueur and process to make a firm, sticky paste. (Add more liqueur, a few drops at a time, if needed to make a slightly moist dough.) Shape into 1-inch balls, rolling between palms of hands. Pack loosely in airtight container with waxed paper between layers. Serve as confections or as dessert with coffee or tea. These make a nice gift, packed in an attractive tin or box. Recipe can be doubled.

Notes
* To toast almonds, spread in an un-greased baking pan. Place in 350 degree oven and bake 5 to 10 minutes or until almonds are light brown; stir once or twice to assure even browning. Note that almonds will continue to brown slightly after removing from oven.
