  Categories: Diabetic, Desserts, Cooky/bars
       Yield: 5 dozen
  
     1/2 c  Butter; softened                  1/8 ts Salt;
       1    Egg;                                1 c  Unsweetened coconut; flaked
       2 ts Vanilla extract;                    1 c  Unsugared dates; chopped
       1 c  Whole wheat flour;                  4 ts Orange peel; fresh grated
       1 ts Baking powder;                      1 c  Pecans; finely ground
  
   Cream the butter, egg and vanilla together in a large mixing bowl. In
   a small bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, baking powder and salt.
   Add the flour mixture a little at a time, to the creamed mixture,
   beating after each addition. In a medium bowl, combine the coconut,
   dates, orange peel, and 1/2 cup of the pecans. Stir into the cookie
   mixture. Divide the dough in half and form into two logs,
   approximately 1.1/2 inches in diameter. Place the remaining 1/2 cup
   of pecans on a piece of waxed paper. Roll the logs in the nuts. Wrap
   each log in waxed paper and chill for 1 hour. To bake, slice the logs
   into 1/8 inch rounds and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet.
   Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly browned.
   
   Makes 5 dozen.
