Frying Pan Date Cookies

This is a bit unusual for a "Redneck" blog, but these cookies are 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.
