Holiday Cheer Week 3 – Mom
I have the best personal family and office family and this has been an especially hard holiday season for both. Besides our mother, Cheri Clampitt, the other Broker/Agent in the office, lost her mother as well. So this week is dedicated to Cheri’s mom. I am posting one of Cheri’s favorite holiday recipes that her mother used to make for her. It was so thoughtful of her to share this with us and I can’t wait to try it. Thank you Cheri!
Mom’s Frozen Date Roll
1 lb graham crackers
1 lb chopped dates
1 pt heavy cream
1 cup chopped nuts
1 lb little marshmallows
1 can crushed pineapple drained
Crush graham crackers to a fine consistency. Add nuts, dates, marshmallows and pineapple. Moisten with the heavy cream. Pack or roll into cylinder shape and put in refrigerator or freezer until solid. After it becomes solid, slice in ½ to 1 inch slices and serve. This recipe can be made without the pineapple if desired or you can also add coconut.
Cheri tells me that this has been a holiday favorite (or just a favorite…it can be made anytime of the year and be just as good! J) I am excited to see if this will become a favorite at our house too!
