Although the real title of these is "Christmas Casserole Cookies", they're really tiny balls of energy...perfect for hiking adventures or to curve that sweet tooth after dinner. They come as another cookie from the Christmas gift collection, shared with permission, from our family friend. They join the other cookies listed below. But really, they should not be saved just for Christmas. Neither of them should. They're too good to only have annually.
Christmas Casserole Cookies (Gluten Free)
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp almond extract
1 c chopped walnuts or pecans
1 c snipped dates
1 c shredded coconut
Beat eggs well. Add sugar. Beat until fluffy. Stir in remaining ingredients. Turn into greased 9x13 pan. Bake 350 for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and stir. Cool. Form into balls. The recipe calls for rolling them in sugar, but I skip that step...I think they're plenty sweet.
