DATE BALLS Corlea 

200g package of plain biscuits like Arrowroot or plain tea biscuits
500g regular pitted dates
225g butter
1 egg, beaten
2/3 cup sugar
1tsp vanilla extract
Unsweetened coconut to coat

Melt butter, sugar, and vanilla together in a saucepan.
Add dates and simmer until entire mixture is soft – it takes a good 20-30 minutes, even with constant stirring and mushing!
Temper the egg into the mixture and cook together for another few minutes.
Break the biscuits into small pieces (this might involve a hammer or heavy rolling pin) in a large bowl.
Add the date mixture to the biscuits and mix to combine.
Allow it to cool (I did about 20 minutes in the fridge) and then roll into balls.
Roll each ball in unsweetened coconut to coat.
