No time to bake? These award winning cookies from 78-year old Frances Van Vynckt, will give you something sweet and easy to make for those holiday parties. My grandmother made something very similar, and now, I want to create some of these great treats.
- 1/4 cup(s) unsalted butter
- 1 cup(s) sugar
- 1 1/2 cup(s) (8 ounces) chopped pitted dates
- 1/8 teaspoon(s) salt
- 1 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
- 2 cup(s) toasted rice cereal, such as Rice Krispies
- 1 cup(s) shredded coconut
- 1. Combine butter, sugar and dates in a large saucepan. Cook, stirring constantly, until the butter is melted, the sugar is no longer white and the dates are mostly melted, 8 to 15 minutes. The mixture should be a shiny, brown sticky mass. Remove from the heat.
- Add salt, vanilla, cereal and coconut; stir well to combine.
- When cool enough to handle, squeeze and roll the mixture into 1-inch balls. Place on a wax paper-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate until chilled.
Makes 4 dozen.
