Date Treat Recipe

Date

Melt ½ cup of butter in a medium-sized saucepan over low to medium heat.
Add 1 cup of flour and stir continuously until the mixture becomes a paste.
Continue stirring until the paste is golden brown. Add 2 cups of chopped dates and stir well.
Continue stirring over the heat while adding ¼ cup of honey, 1 tsp. vanilla, and ½ tsp. cinnamon.

Stir until the mixture becomes difficult to stir, but still looks like a paste.
Remove from the heat. Let the mixture sit until it is cool enough to handle, but still warm.
Stir and mix well again; then shape into balls a little smaller than golf balls.
Roll in sesame seeds, almond pieces, pistachio pieces, or another garnish.
