These cookies are outstanding. You take a bite and get crispy coconut covered cookie, followed by a burst of sweet date, and a crunch of almond or walnut. Mouthful of goodness!
Cream sugar n margarine, add the egg n beat well. Sieve the flour with baking powder then add it in. Mix together. (If the mixture feels too stiff add some milk a tsp. at a time).
Make small balls, press them flat. Put a date in the center (replace seeds of the dates with almonds or walnuts). Form the dough into an egg shape around the date.
Once all are done, dip one by one in beaten egg then roll in desiccated coconut or crushed nuts. Bake till golden...around 25mins or so at 180C!
