The Great Cookie Exchange 2006

Heather at Everything Under the Moon had the wonderful idea of starting a cookie exchange! Here is my contribution.

These are a family tradition from my MIL...

Sugar Plum Cookies

1/2 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 slightly beaten eggs
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
1 cup sugar
1 cup pecans or walnuts chopped
1 1/4 cups chopped dates (8oz)
2 1/2 cups Rice Krispy cereal
1/3 cup water
1 cup all purpose flour
red colored sugar

heat butter in medium skillet over medium heat; when melted, add eggs and sugar. Mix thoroughly, blend in dates, then add water. Cook, stirring constantly til thick (7-10 min). Stir in flour, salt, vanilla, nuts and rice krispies. Mix thoroughly. Cool till lukewarm. Shape into balls or strawberry shapes and roll in sugar. Yields aprox 70.
