A somewhat unusual cookie recipe, but fun to make. Once you have added the cup of Rice Krispies and if the cookies still seem a little too moist, add Rice Krispies by the quarter cup until you get the desired consistency. Then roll in coconut.
1 egg beaten
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup dates (chopped)
1 cup Rice Krispies
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon vanilla
coconut (to roll the cookies in)
Put the beaten egg, the sugar and the chopped dates into a frying pan and cook for several minutes until the mixture “leaves the pan” (i.e. is thick and sticky).
Add: 1 cup Rice Krispies, 1 cup chopped walnuts and 1 teaspoon vanilla.
Roll into small balls. Then roll in coconut.
Store in an airtight container between layers of wax paper.
