Here is a recipe for cookies that look like little snowballs.
Date Pecan Balls
1 cup soft unsalted butter
1/2 c sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 c sifted flour
1 c chopped pecans
1 c chopped dates
I buy the chopped dates in the box and chop into smaller pieces (they look like they are dusted w/sugar)
Cream butter & sugar. Add vanilla and mix; add flour 1/2 c at a time & mix; add pecans & dates. Roll teaspoons of doughinto balls and Refrigerate 1 to 2 hours. Bake on greased cookie sheet @ 350 for 20 minutes. Roll in Confectioner's Sugar or sprinkle heavy.
These cookies are buttery delicious.
The reviews are in on this recipe and they are a smashing hit!
I made them a couple of weeks ago and froze them. Set them out on the counter yesterday morning still in the freezer container to defrost and moved them to a serving platter a little before my open house started.
I gots lots of compliments. Lots of What's in These questions. Lots of I've never had these before and They Taste Like Christmas comments.
This recipe is a keeper .. Thanks so much to KatCat1.
Merry Christmas to everyone.
I made them also and they are very tasty and the recipe is definitely a keeper.
I may have chopped the dates too small. My grocery had bulk dates, so I bought them. Some were hard and got harder in the cookie after baked. I never baked with dates before. When I remake I probably will use the prechopped dates OP used. I am wondering what dried cranberries or cherries would taste like.
