Date Balls Recipe ClippingThese date balls are a snap to make. A date, egg and flour mixture is poured into a casserole and baked briefly, then scooped out and rolled into balls. The balls will keep several weeks in a covered tin, in a cool place. Mrs. Haynes says they improve with age.


2 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup chopped dates
1 cup coconut
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. almond extract
1 cup finely chopped walnuts

Beat eggs and one cup sugar until fluffy. Stir in remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour into a two-quart casserole and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. While still hot, stir with wooden spoon. Cool to room temperature.

Scoop out balls the size of walnuts and roll in palms. Roll in remaining granulated sugar. Makes about four dozen balls.
