Sugarplum Drops

Recipe from Family Fun Magazine-Dec. 2007

1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup dried apricots
1/2 cup chopped dates
3/4 cup dried cranberries
3/4 cup pecans
1 cup blanched almonds
1/4 cup orange juice
1/2 cup granulated OR sifted confectioners' sugar

Combine dried fruit and nuts in a food processor and pulse till you get a coarse mixture - about 1 minute. Add orange juice and pulse again until the mixture sticks together - about 15 seconds. Shape mixture into 1-inch balls, then roll in sugar for a sweet coating. Refrigerate. Makes about 2-3 dozen. Note: Refrigerate overnight to give them more body.
