Skillet Cookies

My favorite Christmas cookie!

Skillet Cookies

•1 cup chopped dates (I used 10 ounces)
•1 cup sugar
•3 tablespoons butter
•1 egg, well beaten
•1/2 teaspoon vanilla
•2 cup crisp rice cereal
•3/4 cup pecans
•1 cup flaked coconut

Mix dates, sugar, butter and egg in heavy skillet. Melt over low heat; cook for about 5 minutes on low heat, until bubbly. Remove from heat; add vanilla, rice cereal and pecans. When cool enough to handle, roll into small balls and roll in coconut

What's your favorite Christmas cookie? :-)

Mom always made these and now I do, too. Never made them in a skillet though--just a pan on the stove. They are a favorite around here.
