Frosty Date Balls
1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup vegan butter, softened (I use Earth Balance)
1/3 cup powdered sugar + more for dusting
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon nondairy milk (I use almond)
3/4 cup dates, chopped
1/3 cup walnuts, chopped
1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Sift together flour and salt. In another bowl, combine vegan butter with sugar and vanilla.
2. Add nondairy milk, then stir in sifted flour (you actually should sift it in, but sometimes I don't bother.) Fold in dates and nuts; be careful to not over mix.
3. Form into small (walnut sized) balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. You can cram in a lot, they do not really get bigger.
4. Bake 20 minutes and be very careful to not over bake! They should be barely browned on top. Take out of the oven and immediately sift more powdered sugar on top.
Store in an airtight container. This is the traditional Christmas cookie for me growing up; so good, flaky and delicious! Very good for fancy parties or dinners.
