STUFFED DATES

My Grandmother used to make these, especially for my Mother. She made them around Holiday time.
They are just so yummy.

4 1/2 C powdered sugar
2/3 C sweetened condensed milk 
1 1/2 t vanilla
1/4 t salt
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans (optional)
4 dozen whole pitted dates
Granulated sugar 


Mix powdered sugar, milk and vanilla and salt and if using, pecans.  Kneed until well blended. Place in a bowl and refrigerate overnight.

When ready, use a knife to make a slit lengthwise down the date, and stuff it with some of the fondant mixture. Close the date a little, leaving the stuffing showing and then roll in the granulated sugar all over. Repeat . Makes 4 dozen stuffed dates.
