Christmas Cookies Gluten Free

No Bake Frying Pan Dainties

Frying Pan Dainties
Grandma is anyone born in 1959 still alive?  This question was asked with such seriousness that Grandpa and I broke out laughing.  Emily also laughed when she realized that both of us were born before 1959 and so our cookie making adventure started with laughter.
The girls wanted to go to Great Aunt Marjorie’s recipe box and find a new Christmas cookie to make.  It was there that we found “No Bake Recipes” a handmade cook book but together by the Friendship Group Pioneer Memorial United Church Ipswich Road Hamilton, Ontario 1959.
Frying Pan Dainties was picked because we had all of the ingredients on hand.  This is a very sweet cookie and so make your balls small or cut back on the sugar used.  Here is the recipe from  “No Bake Recipes”


Frying Pan Dainties

Ingredients
  • 1 ½ cups chopped dates
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 cup gluten free Rice Krispies
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups shredded coconut

1 cup sugar
Directions:
  1. Cut dates in half
  2. In a heavy frying pan add dates, eggs, sugar and cook stirring constantly for 15 minutes on medium heat. The mixture will thicken.
  3. Then add the Rice Krispies and vanilla and stir
  4. Set aside until cool enough to handle
  5. Place shredded coconut in a shallow dish and spoon small portions of the cooled mixture on the coconut.  With a spoon roll the batter in the coconut until covered enough that you can roll into a ball.
  6. Store in a covered container.

Mother Teresa Quote - Hungry For Love

Even the rich are hungry for love, for being cared for, for being wanted, for having someone to call their own.

Mother Teresa

This Christmas season when the urge to spend like the rich comes upon you remember the words of Mother Teresa.  If you haves someone to call your own you have what no amount of money can buy ~ love, a family.

Gifts cannot buy love, gifts cannot provide you with a place in a family.  Don’t let the Christmas gifts you buy this season mean that in 2015 you have less time to spend with family, your children as you pay back Christmas debt.
