#3484 - Gooey Walnut Crackers

(by Shirley McNevich)

1/2 cup walnuts (finely chopped)
1 cup dates (finely chopped)
1 - 14oz. can Eagle brand sweetened condensed milk
2 sleeves of Ritz crackers (more if needed)
1/2 cup Domino's powdered sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
regular milk (as needed)
1 tsp. vanilla

Place Ritz crackers on baking sheets. In a saucepan over medium low heat add condensed milk, chopped walnuts and chopped dates--cook/stir until boiling. Turn heat back to simmer and cook/stir until mixture is gooey. Remove from heat--drop a level teaspoonful of the gooey mixture on to each Ritz cracker. Continue until you run out of the gooey mixture. Bake crackers at 350 degrees for 5-8 minutes or until cracker edges are golden brown. Let the crackers on the cookie sheets and cool them completely. Glaze: in a bowl add powdered sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and a little milk--stir. Keep adding milk and stirring until mixture is a thick glaze, then stir quickly until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled crackers.
