Yield :
About 18


  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 1 cup dates, chopped in small pieces
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  2. Using a firm whisk, quickly whisk in eggs, add sugar and whisk vigorously.
  3. Add dates, vanilla and salt and cook over medium heat while constantly stirring with a firm whisk or heat resistant spatula. The mixture will boil after about 5 to 7 minutes and can then be removed from heat source.
