Fruity Pebbles

3 cups mixed dried fruits of your choice
1 cup finely chopped pecans
grated rind of 1 lemon
1/2 cup toasted wheat germ, plus more for rolling
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons chocolate-orange liqueur (optional)

Chop the fruits in a food processor or chopping bowl to blend. Combine the fruit mixture with the remaining ingredients. Shape into small (½") balls and roll in additional toasted wheat germ.

If you have extra nuts, you can use finely ground pecans for rolling instead of wheat germ. For a decorative touch, roll in grated coconut or colored sprinkles.

Yield: 40-50 small "cookie" balls
