I found this hidden gem of a recipe in a library book several years ago. It is always the first to go in my Christmas goody baskets.
- In electric skillet set at 300 degrees (or heavy pan over low heat), cook butter, sugar, dates and egg until gooey and thickened.
- Add pecans and vanilla.
- Then add Rice Krispies.
- Mix well.
- Cool until slightly warm.
- Form into balls & roll in powdered sugar.
- Makes 50-60 small balls.
