DATE PECAN BALL COOKIES

This recipe was cut from some type of old box. I would imagine it was a box of dates,however, I can't say for sure.

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups sifted flour
2 cups ground pecans
1 cup whole date, cut up

Cream butter and sugar together. Add vanilla to sugar mixture and stir to mix in. Add the flour and mix well. Fold the pecans and dates into the mixture. Using a teaspoon, take dough into your hands and roll into balls. Refrigerate balls for 1 to 2 hours. Bake balls in a preheated 350 degree oven on a greased cookie sheet for approximately 20 minutes. Remove cookies from pan and roll into powdered sugar. After cookies have cooled, sprinkle more powdered sugar over them.
