It’s a dream come true! Something I wrote went viral. Ding, ding, pin, pin, says my iPhone all day/all night long. It seems folks across the land are pinning and re-pinning my mom’s Christmas cookie recipe I posted last year. Why? The photo? The no-bake aspect?
Whatever the attraction, keep spreading the love of these delicious cookies.
Post from last year at this time:
My mom always made these cookies at Christmas. I have no idea where the recipe came from, I only know it as hers. They are easy to make and require no baking. The result is a rich coconut-date-nut ball that everyone loves. You can make them ahead and freeze them. I hope you enjoy them as much as my family does. (My son still thinks there is chocolate in them!)
No-Bake Coconut-Date-Nut Balls
- 1-1/2 cup chopped dates
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs, slightly beaten
- ½ cup butter or margarine
Cook the above ingredients in a large saucepan on medium heat until thick…about 10 minutes after the butter melts and all is bubbly. Stir to prevent sticking and burning.
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 1 cup nuts
Form into balls and roll in coconut. Chill. Freezes well.
