"This is a good way to use up leftover ingredients from Christmas baking. The amounts of dates, nuts and coconut can be varied - just use a total of 3 cups."

Peggy, thank you for posting this recipe. I've been looking for it for years. Folks this is a wonderful holiday cookie. I top mine off with half a candied cherry to make them look festive.

I usually don't goof, but I still give this a 5* because it was my fault. Be careful. It calls for 1 1/4 cup sugar, but you are to use only 1 cup in the batter. It made them a tad bit sweet, ...
