 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2   c            Butter -- softened
    1                    Egg
    2       ts           Vanilla extract
    1       c            Whole wheat flour
    1       t            Baking powder
      1/8   ts           Salt
    1       c            Unsweetened coconut -- flaked
    1       c            Unsugared dates -- chopped
    4       ts           Orange peel -- fresh grated
    1       c            Pecans -- finely ground
 
   Cream the butter, egg and vanilla together in a large mixing bowl. In
   a small bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, baking powder and salt.
   Add the flour mixture a little at a time, to the creamed mixture,
   beating after each addition. In a medium bowl, combine the coconut,
   dates, orange peel, and 1/2 cup of the pecans. Stir into the cookie
   mixture. Divide the dough in half and form into two logs,
   approximately 1.1/2 inches in diameter. Place the remaining 1/2 cup
   of pecans on a piece of waxed paper. Roll the logs in the nuts. Wrap
   each log in waxed paper and chill for 1 hour. To bake, slice the logs
   into 1/8 inch rounds and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet.
   Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly browned.
   
   Makes 5 dozen.
