Turkish Goodies

These are good - and I usually have to make 2 batches - one without the coconut. I don’t eat coconut - but I love dates and nuts!


2 cups sugar
1 cup cold water
1 cup chopped dates
1 cup salted mixed nuts
1 cup coconut

Cook sugar and water to soft ball stage. Then add dates and boil one minute. Remove from heat and stir in nuts and coconut. Beat until it begins to thicken and drop by spoonfuls on waxed paper.
