Cooking a cookie in a skillet creates a deep, golden crust, giving the cookie a delightful crunch that contradicts the soft, chewy center. This helps to create a textural contrast that gives the cookie an added level of complexity. Furthermore, it increases the cooking surface area, resulting in a more evenly cooked cookie with a superior taste.


  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 cup dates, pitted and chopped

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 2 cups crisp rice cereal

  • 1/2 cup flaked coconut

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar


  • In a large skillet, melt the margarine. Add the sugar and dates; cooking and stirring until thick. Stir in the egg, and cook 5 more minutes over low heat. Remove from heat, mix in the cereal, nuts (or coconut), and vanilla. Let the mixture cool for a minute, then shape into walnut-sized balls. Roll in confectioners’ sugar, and serve.
