    Diane G.'s Note:

    This is something I 'created' many, many years ago when I was trying to make something out of dates that my (then) boyfriend was reluctant to eat. Very High Sugar Content.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    confect ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 lb confectioners' sugar, approx. (plus about a cup for rolling)
    • 6 tablespoons melted margarine or 6 tablespoons butter
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    • 2 tablespoons fruit juice (Orange Juice best but can use lemon, lime, pineapple or mango juice.)
    • 3/4 cup chopped dried fruit (I prefer dates but can use any dried fruit)
    • 3/4 cup chopped nuts (Walnuts or Pecans best but would work with anything)
    • 1/3 cup flour

    Directions:

    1. 1
      (My favorite combination is Orange Juice with Dates and Walnuts, but also good with Cranberries and Pecans, or use mango juice with dried pineapples and macadamia nuts for a tropical taste.) Grind nuts and then also mince dried fruit very, very finely in blender or food processor.
    2. 2
      Set aside.
    3. 3
      Mix together melted margerine/butter, vanilla, juice and confectioners' sugar.
    4. 4
      Stir in ground nuts and fruit.
    5. 5
      Stir in as much of the flour as needed to make a fairly stiff dough.
    6. 6
      Turn dough out onto floured board and knead a few times to make sure all flour is integrated.
    7. 7
      Will be VERY sticky.
    8. 8
      Roll with floured rolling pin to about 1/2 inch thick (or as thick as desired) Cut into squares or diamonds with butter knife.
    9. 9
      Roll each square or diamond in powdered sugar.
    10. 10
      Let sit in cool spot or refrigerator until dry.
