6. Drop the batter by rounded TEASPOONS 2-inches apart on the baking sheets

Snow Balls
A Christmas tradition in my family!
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup finely chopped pitted dates (don't use already chopped dates)
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1 cup sweetened coconut flakes or shredded
1/2 cup of chopped walnuts (optional)
NOTE: If you don't use the walnuts, you should add a little more rice krispies - about 1/2 cup.

1. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.
2. In a large cold skillet, melt the butter over low heat.
3. Remove pan from the heat and stir in the brown sugar, dates, and eggs.
4. Return to heat and cook over low heat.
5. Stir constantly for about 10 minutes (until sugar is dissolved and mixture becomes a thick paste)
6. Remove the pan from the heat
7. Stir in the vanilla and cereal until well combined
8. Let cool slightly, then when cool enough to handle, squeeze and roll the mixture into 1-inch balls
9. Roll them in the coconut
10. Place on a lined baking sheet and refrigerate until chilled.
11. Chill at least 1 hour before serving.
12. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Makes about 3 dozen Coconut Date Balls - depending on the size.

Make a bouble batch and give some as gifts in a pretty tin.
You can roll them in powdered sugar if you don't like coconut.
You can add 1/3 cup of dried cranberries if you want to add an extra festive touch.

Prosciutto & Creem Cheese Filo Tarts
Great when hosting a party, or as a late night snack!
You could also serve them along side a green salad as a light lunch!

1 tbsp butter
1 medium onion, shopped
100 g prosciutto, finely chopped
pinch of salt & black pepper
200 g Creem Cheese (pref. herbs)
1 egg white
3 sheets of filo pastry, thawed
2 tbsp butter (brushing onto pastry)

1-Preheat oven to 350 F
2- Melt 1 tbsp butter in a small skillet, add onion & prosciutto. Season with salt & pepper. Cook until onions are translucent and prosciutto begins to crisp. Remove from heat & let cool for 10 mins.
3- While that cools, place 1 sheet of filo pastry on a clean work surface. Brush with melted butter. Add the 2nd sheet & brush with butter. Add the 3rd sheet & brush with butter. Cut pastry into 24 - 2 inch squares. Lightly spray a mini tart pan with cooking oil. Place squares into a mini tart pan.
4- Mix the cream cheese & egg white into the onion/prosciutto mix.
5- Fill each tart shell with a teaspoonful of the mixture.
6- Bake for 15-20 minutes. Watch carefully as filo pastry browns quickly.
Makes 24!

Ideas & Tips:
Variation: replace the prosciutto with thawed spinach! Or even better: make 12 of each by seperating your mixture in half before adding the prosciutto & the spinach to each half!
