Skillet Coconut Date Cookies

Skillet Coconut Date Cookies

2 Squares of Butter

1 1/2 C Sugar

2 C Chopped Dates

2 Eggs Beaten

2 T Milk

1 tsp Vanilla

6-7 cups Rice Krispies

12 oz Pkg of Flakes Coconut

On a 2 cookie sheet place about 2 cups of rice krispies ans set aside. Mix egg & milk and set aside. In electric frying pan place the butter, sugar and dates and stir while melting the butter. Stir while cooking at a low temperature of about 325 until the butter is melted and the dates start to soften and mixture bubbles. Add the egg/milk mixture slowly a little at a time while stirring quickly to blend the mixture into the date mixture without allowing the egg mixture to cook. After mixing the ingredients all together, cook till it pulls away from the pan about 7 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and 3 cups of rice krispies. Mix well and scoop out onto the cookie sheet over the rice krispies. When cool enough to handle press into the rice krispies and then roll in coconut. I use parchment paper to roll in coconut. If mixture is too hot to handle you can butter hands and it helps or just wait till it is cool enough to handle. Don’t let cool to long or it wont stick the the coconut. Make ahead and freeze. Store in air tight container.
