Everyone loves getting little trays of Christmas cookies from neighbors and family friends. The usual assortment includes some decorated sugar cookies, peanut butter blossoms, maybe some fudge... well add this to your tray of goodies because it'll bring some tasty variation in flavor and texture to the usual mix and it's really easy to make!

date roll

1 stick butter
1 cup dates, chopped
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

Add the butter, dates, egg, vanilla, and salt to a saucepan and cook for 6-10 minutes over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thick. Mix the walnuts with the Rice Krispies in a large bowl and then pour the wet mixture over the Rice Krispies and walnuts. Mix well and then shape into a roll and wrap in wax paper. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours minimum, then cut in thin slices to serve. It's usually better cold but you can serve it room temperature if you'd like!
