 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  cup           Butter or margarine
    1      large         Egg
    2      teaspoons     Vanilla extract
    1      teaspoon      Baking powder
    1      dash          Salt  -- or to taste
    1      cup           Flour
    1      cup           Dates, unsugared  -- chopped
    1      cup           Coconut  -- shredded
    1      cup           Walnuts or pecans
 
    Cream butter, egg and vanilla until mixed and fluffy.  Beat in dry
 ingredients gradually mixing well after each addition.  Mix in dates,
 coconut and 1/2 cup of the nuts.  Form dough into two 1 1/2-inch logs.
    Roll logs into remaining nuts (1/4 cup each).  Wrap in waxed paper and
 chill (or freeze) until firm enough to slice.
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Slice cookies 1/4-inch thick and place on
 a nonstick cookie sheet.  Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until light golden
 brown.  Cool on wire racks.
