Want a easy to make, easy to clean up yet big taste sweet? If so then these date balls are perfect for you. Try to use the soft and sweet dates if you can get them. You can easily use fresh or dried coconut in this recipe. And if you can not find tea biscuits where you live then vanilla wafers will work just as well.
2-1/2 cups dates, pitted
10 tea biscuits, ground by hands
1/2 cup shredded coconut
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
1. In a medium sized bowl add dates, tea biscuits, coconut, sesame seeds and cardamom, mix well until a sticky date dough is made. In a 9-inch skillet on medium heat melt butter. Add date dough pieces at time, flipping to heat thoroughly. Cook aproxamitly 5 minutes.
2. Carefully make mixture into balls the size of golf balls (I use plastic gloves).
