Irish Coffee Balls

3 1/2 cups vanilla wafer crumbs
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1 1/2 cups sifted confectioner's sugar, divided
3 tablespoons instant coffee granules
1/3 cup Irish Whiskey
1/3 cup light corn syrup

In large bowl, combine cookie crumbs, pecans and 1 cup sugar. In another bowl, dissolve coffee crystals in whiskey. Add to dry mixture along with corn syrup, mixing well until well blended. Shape into 1" balls. Roll in remaining sugar and store in an airtight container.

Cookies become more flavorful after sitting for 2-3 days.
