A winner from toddler to senior citizens for flavor and ease of making!


Serves/Makes:2 dozen approx.

  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup (225 ml) sugar
  • 1 stick of butter or oleo
  • 35 dates, cut up (about 1/2 lb (.2 kg).)

  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) finely chopped nuts
  • Optional:
  • shredded coconut or dipping chocolate
  • Cook the egg, sugar, and butter over medium high heat in a heavy saucepan for about 5-7 minutes. Everything should be well blended, dissolved, and starting to be thickened.
  • Add the Rice Krispies and the chopped nuts.
  • Form into balls.
  • Roll in shredded coconut or chill and dip in chocolate.

For adult use only, I like to add liqueurs or a liqour these no-bake cookies, try rum or brandy with this one, and bourbon whiskey isn't too bad either!
