    Kate in Katoomba's Note:

    Hope you're feeling Christmasy as these are perfect treats for when you want to get festive. These are mentioned in the classic poem "Twas The Night Before Christmas" and are full of yummy, good things. This recipe is different from the other "Sugarplum" one posted on Zaar and comes courtesy of Stephanie Alexander via "The Sydney Morning Herald". As a child I always wanted to be the Sugarplum Fairy in the ballet "The Nutcracker". Too many of these and she wouldn't get in the tutu.

    1. 1

    3. 3

      Pulse a few times to mix.
    6. 6

    7. 7
      Note to self: now is not the time to answer the phone.
    8. 8
      Pinch of walnut sized pieces and roll into balls (you will need to re-oil your hands at least twice during this process as the mixture is very sticky).
    9. 9
      Sift the icing sugar over the rolled balls, enough to coat well.
    10. 10
      Store in an airtight container.
    11. 11

      Tried these and was very surprised at how good they are! Kids weren't fond of them, but they don't like dates (at least not the food kind!) I will be making these again.
