Dates With Fondant

For 20 dates, we need 1/2 cup of fondant. The fondant is made as follows.

Beat the white of an egg until stiff, add 3 tablespoons of water and gradually add 5 cups of confectioners sugar (icing sugar).

When it is almost stiff, add the vanilla, and when it rolls away in the form of a ball from the sides of the dish,put it on a board powdered with confectioners sugar.

Knead it as though it were bread dough until it is well mixed, then roll the fondant into sticks about one inch wide and cut small pieces crosswise.

Place a strip in the centre of each date and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
