Peanut Butter Date Cookies

This non-bake cookie combines the pleasant flavors of pecans and dates.  Children love to make these cookies and to eat them.



1-1/2 cups natural salted peanut butter             1 cup raisins

1/2 cup honey                                                              1-1/2 cups finely chopped pecans

1 teaspoon vanilla extract                                      1 cup chopped dates

1/2 teaspoon salt



  1. Mix the peanut butter, honey, vanilla, and salt in a medium-size bowl.
  2. Add the raisins, finely chopped pecans, and dates to the liquid ingredients and mix well. Pecans should be chopped in a food processor so they resemble crumbs or coarse meal.
  3. Cover and refrigerate the dough for 2 hours to stiffen. Remove dough from the refrigerator and break off pieces of dough, making balls 1” in diameter.  Roll the balls in shredded coconut, sesame seeds, or chopped pecans.  Cookies may be a bit oily depending on the consistency of the peanut butter.    Makes 50 cookies.
