Now this is a day I can sink my teeth into! December 4th is National Cookie Day. I have no idea who declares these special days but I’ll go along with this one.
Hospitality Tool: A cookie can break the ice, say welcome or thank you, and a warm batch out of the oven makes your family happy.

Of all my recipes over the years, my Coconut Balls rack up a lot of Pintrest pins all year round. So here they are again, just in time for Christmas baking.
Enjoy the season and thanks for checking in.
Love to all,
No-Bake Coconut-Date-Nut Balls
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.
1-1/2 cup chopped dates
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 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.
