My mom makes these every Christmas. They are really delicious and so pretty too, like they have snow sprinkled on top. Hence the name, "Frosty" :) These can be thrown together in about 30 minutes and keep in an airtight container for about 1-2 weeks.


  1. Cream butter and 1/3 cup powdered sugar until light and fluffy.
  2. Mix in water, vanilla, flour, salt, dates, and walnuts.
  3. Roll into balls a little larger than the size of walnuts and bake on an ungreased baking sheet 2 1/2 inches apart at 300 degrees F for 20 minutes (Till soft but NOT brown.).
  4. While warm, roll in powdered sugar OR sift powdered sugar over warm cookies.
  5. *NOTE: Serving size is approximate!
