Today is National Cookie Day

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.

  1. Oh no! How on earth did I miss National Cookie Day and National Peanut Butter Fudge Day? I need to pay more attention to these important holidays.
