Coconut - Orange No Bake Cookies

1 12oz box vanilla wafers, crushed (I like to run them through the food processor.)
1 6oz can orange juice concentrate, thawed
16 oz powdered sugar (3 3/4 cups)
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup chopped walnuts
2 cups coconut

Combine all ingredients except coconut.  Stir until well blended.  Shape into 1 inch balls.  Pour coconut into shallow dish and roll cookies in it. Store cookies in airtight container. Makes 4-5 dozen.

This recipe came from my aunt, Avalon ("Glory") Young.  Aunt Glory never had children of her own so she loved to dote on the nieces and nephews.  I don't remember lots of details about her but everything I do remember involves me sitting on her lap or at her knee near the recliner in her living room.
