Sugarless Wheat 'n' Fruit Cookies
Whole wheat flour
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.
