Origins of Date Ball Cookies/Angel Delights/Moth Ball Cookies
Hey all, I am researching my family's culinary history, and I have been trying to figure out the origins of a popular family dish: date ball cookies made with rice krispies, dates, and rolled in coconut. I've found out they're also called Angel Delights, Skillet Cookies, and Moth Ball cookies by some, but I'm struggling to find where they first originated from. Anyone know their origins? It seems like they're a very old cookie, although they can't be older than 1928 (the launch of rice krispies as a cereal). Thanks!
