Christmas Casserole Cookies Recipe

The batter for these specialty cookies is baked and then formed into balls. When my son-in-law and grandson are coming for a visit, I'm always sure to have these cookies on hand.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling YIELD:24 servings


  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup chopped dates
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • Additional sugar


  • 1. In a bowl, beat eggs until lemon-colored. Gradually beat in sugar. Beat in extracts. Stir in the dates, coconut and walnuts. Pour into an ungreased deep 2-qt. baking dish.
  • 2. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes. Remove from oven; stir with a wooden spoon (batter will appear moist and sticky). Place baking dish on a wire rack. When cool enough to handle, roll batter into 1-in. balls. Roll in sugar; place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Yield: 4 dozen.
