Merry Christmas to everyone! We enjoyed having my sister, Becky, and her family here last week and so I've already gotten one of the best presents ever! We went to Dallas one day, Fort Worth for one of the days, Six Flags for Holiday in the Park, Babe's, Texas Motor Speedway and Southlake Town Square...many of the Texas hotspots! Now all three of our sons are home...life is good!
This Christmas has been fast-paced so far, so I haven't gotten the cookies and fudge done that I usually do by Christmas eve. That got me to thinking that many of you might like a very quick recipe for cookies, as well. So today, I'm sharing my Aunt Hazel's recipe for Date Balls. Eat some of these delicious cookies with your "kith and kin"...yes, we did watch Christmas Vacation with the Williamson crew while they were here!
Aunt Hazel's Date Balls
1 C sugar
1 stick butter
1 C chopped dates
Mix well; bring to a boil. Remove from heat; cool and stir in 2 C Rice Krispies cereal, 1/2 C chopped nuts. Form into small balls and roll in shredded coconut. Very good!
I wish everyone a safe and happy holiday! ~Marcia
