My Nana collected this cookie recipe from my Grandma June (my Dad’s Mom). These Porcupine cookies are very simple to make and they taste delicious (I’ve been told!). Simple ingredients are needed; 1 egg, 1 tbsp butter, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup chopped dates and 1 cup of chopped walnuts. You need only bake them for 15 minutes, let them cool and roll them in coconut. I think I will try these but I will need to substitute pecans for those walnuts.
