I had these last Christmas and had misplaced the recipe. These are a very good cookie and easy to transport, as they stay very firm.

How to Make Chinese Chews

Step-by-Step

Mix just until the dough comes together; add the pecans and dates, mixing until just combined. Butter 9 x 13 inch baking pan and dust with flour. Spread the batter in the pan evenly as if baking bar or brownies. Place on center rack of oven and bake for 25 minutes at 375 degrees. Remove from oven and let cool for 20 minutes. While still warm, using a tablespoon or small ice cream scoop, scoop the balls from the baking pan of baked dough and roll into a nice round shape. Roll each ball in powdered sugar to coat. Cool completely and store in an air tight container. Delish!
