Ingredients:

1/2 cup Butter -- softened
1 large Egg
2 teaspoons Vanilla extract
1 cup Whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon Baking powder
1/8 teaspoon Salt
1 cup Unsweetened coconut -- flaked
1 cup Unsugared dates -- chopped
4 teaspoons Orange peel -- fresh grated
1 cup Pecans -- finely ground
 

Preparation / Directions:

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.
