Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
    • 1 egg
    • 2 tsp vanilla
    • 1 cup unbleached flour
    • 1 tsp baking powder
    • 1 cup pitted dates, chopped
    • 1 cup shredded coconut
    • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350F

In an electric mixer bowl, beat butter with egg and vanilla until smooth.

In a separate bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Gradually add flour mixture to creamed mixture; beat until blended.

Mix in dates, coconut and walnuts.

Form dough into two 1-1/2 inch rolls and wrap in waxed paper or foil; chill in freezer until firm enough to slice easily (about 2 hours) or up to one month.

With a sharp knife, cut rolls into 3/8-inch thick slices. Place slices on a lightly greased cookies sheet and bake in preheated oven about 12 minutes or until golden. Cool on rack.
