No Bake Strawberry Cookies

These cookies have no strawberries in them, they are just made to look like strawberries. Still tasty though!

1/4 lb Butter or margarine
1/2 cup Sugar
1 Egg (beaten)
4 ounces Dates (chopped)
1/2 cup Flour
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
1/2 cup Nuts (chopped)
1 1/4 cup Rice krispies cereal
Red sugar
Green icing

Heat butter, sugar, egg and dates for 5 minutes in a saucepan over low-medium heat. Add in flour a little at a time, mixing well, and let cook for an additional 5-7 minutes. Remove mixture from heat, then stir in salt, nuts, vanilla extract and crispy cereal, mixing well. Avoid letting mixture get cold. Shape dough into strawberry shapes. Place dough in a plastic bag with red sugar and shake to coat cookies with the sugar. Use green icing to create the strawberry stem.
