Date and Nut Caramel Truffles

2 eggs
tsp salt
tsp almond extract
cup sugar
cup corn syrup
1 cup chopped dates
cup all-purpose flour, sifted
1/3 cup icing (confectioners) sugar

In a bowl, beat together eggs, salt, and almond extract until light. Gradually add sugar and corn syrup while stirring nonstop. Add nuts and dates. Mix well. Incorporate the sifted flour. Pour into 2 well-greased 8-inch cake pans. Bake in moderate oven (375 F) for 20 to 25 minutes.

While hot, cut into 1-inch squares. Form, without delay, into small balls. Roll each ball in icing sugar. These truffles keep well in a tightly covered container. Makes 3 dozens.

Really like the truffle idea to bring out for a special brunch, and as this post is quite old, I see that the recipe amounts have evaporated. If possible, let's see if this can be revived!

The example is one reason I no longer use fraction keys.

Iris, thank you retrieving this for me, I am going to make them today for the brunch. I bet they will be just lovely on the tiered stand that I have to display.

Oly,,,,, have bookmarked this as I often have given up on the recipes! Hopefully I will be able to use more that I find now!
