date nut ball cookies, Member bjmichaeli

I have been looking for this recipe for numerous years. I first received it in about 1952 when I took cooking in high school. Hopefully this is the same one that I had. Mine got lost in moving. I haven't made them yet, but am going to the store to buy the ingredients, will let you know if they are the same. Thank you so much.
