A cooked mixture of sugar, milk, butter, dates, candied cherries and nuts is beaten with an electric mixer, rolled up, chilled, and sliced.

  • Servings: 30


3 cups Sugar
2 Tbsp Butter
1½ cups Milk
1 cup Dates, chopped
1 cup Each Red & Green Candied Cherries, chopped
2 cups Chopped Pecans or Walnuts


Bring sugar, butter and milk to a boil, keep at a nice, overall gentle boil for 20 minutes, being careful not to over-stir. Add dates, cherries, and nuts and cook 5 more minutes. Beat with electric mixer until smooth and mixture begins to thicken (it will be creamy and will hold its shape).

Roll up in a damp cloth and refrigerate. When cooled completely, unroll and slice.
