Ritz Cracker Cookies (12-31-2019)

Mom's Tips

December 31st, 2019 by Jim Field

  • 1 cup chopped dates
  • 1 can Eagle brand milk
  • 1/2 cup nuts (optional)

Cook dates and milk until thick.  Add nuts.  Spread on Crackers and bake 5 minutes at 350 degrees.

Frosting:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 oz. package cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Blend until smooth and creamy.  Frost cookies.  Fix frosting first so it is ready to spread on cookies when they come from the oven (I let them cool first).  Makes 65-70.

I use this frosting:

  • 1 lb. powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla or coconut flavoring. (I use coconut)
