Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe was taken from the Emerald Rebekah Lodge cookbook. It was contributed by Lois Thompson. Grandma modified it by rolling each ball in coconut; Lois's recipe only instructed for these balls to be rolled in icing sugar.
Grandma always had these "dainties" on her cookie plates at Christmas time.
