 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 c Butter; softened
  • 1 Egg;
  • 2 ts Vanilla extract;
  • 1 c Whole wheat flour;
  • 1 ts Baking powder;
  • 1/8 ts Salt;
  • 1 c Unsweetened coconut; flaked
  • 1 c Unsugared dates; chopped
  • 4 ts Orange peel; fresh grated
  • 1 c Pecans; finely ground


Cream the butter, egg and vanilla together in a large mixing bowl. In
a small bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, baking powder and salt.
Add the flour mixture a little at a time, to the creamed mixture,
beating after each addition. In a medium bowl, combine the coconut,
dates, orange peel, and 1/2 cup of the pecans. Stir into the cookie
mixture. Divide the dough in half and form into two logs,
approximately 1.1/2 inches in diameter. Place the remaining 1/2 cup
of pecans on a piece of waxed paper. Roll the logs in the nuts. Wrap
each log in waxed paper and chill for 1 hour. To bake, slice the logs
into 1/8 inch rounds and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly browned.

Makes 5 dozen.
