Woodchucks

2 cups walnuts (or 1 cup black walnuts and 1 cup pecans)
1 cup pitted dates
1 cup brown sugar packed
2 eggs
3 1/2 cups shredded coconut, divided
Put walnuts and dates through coarse blade of grinder or chop coarsely using steel blade of food processor or blender.  Add brown sugar, eggs and 1 1/2 cups of coconut, mix well.  Shape mixture into 1" balls.  Roll balls in remaining 2 cups coconut and place balls on well greased baking sheet.  Bake in a preheated 375-degree oven 10-12 minutes or until coconut is toasted.  Cookies will be soft so be gentle, they will firm up when cooled. 

I am not fond of dates but my mom and several others are.
