Well – Christmas is almost here! Where does the time go? I shopped all day Saturday and Sunday. My calves are still killing me. It may take until after the New Year to recover. The other thing I still need to work on: the food. The goodies. Everyone wants goodies. Right? Right.
Here’s another quick and easy recipe. I personally do not like the ‘roll in coconut’ part of this recipe and I use powdered sugar instead, but for those who love coconut – go for it.
1 egg, well beaten
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup margarine or butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 8 oz. package chopped dates
2 cups Rice Krispies
1/4 cup chopped pecans
Mix egg, sugar, margarine, salt and dates in a saucepan; cook, stirring frequently, until dates are soft and mixture is thick. Place saucepan in ice water until mixture is cool enough to handle. Add Rice Krispies and nuts; mix quickly. Shape into small balls with buttered hands. Roll each ball in coconut. Or powdered sugar if you do not care for coconut.
Y’all Enjoy! And, make some goodies for Christmas.
