A somewhat unusual cookie recipe, but fun to make. Once you have added the cup of Rice Krispies and if the cookies still seem a little too moist, add Rice Krispies by the quarter cup until you get the desired consistency. Then roll in coconut.

  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup dates (chopped)
  • 1 cup Rice Krispies
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • coconut (to roll the cookies in)
    Put the beaten egg, the sugar and the chopped dates into a frying pan and cook for several minutes until the mixture “leaves the pan” (i.e. is thick and sticky).

    Add: 1 cup Rice Krispies, 1 cup chopped walnuts and 1 teaspoon vanilla.

    Roll into small balls. Then roll in coconut.

    Store in an airtight container between layers of wax paper.
