2 boxes Vanilla Wafers (12 oz size) 1 jar Maraschino Cherries (10 oz size) 1 pkg Chopped Dates (8 oz size) 1 box Raisins (15 oz size) 1 1/2 cu Chopped Nuts (pecans, walnuts or a combination) 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk (14 oz size) Method Us a food processor to pulverize all the vanilla wafers to the consistency of breadcrumbs. Pour about 3/4 cup of crumbs into a shallow plate and set aside. Place the remainder of the crumbs in a large bowl. Drain the juice from the maraschino cherries into a bowl and set aside. Remove the stems and roughly chop the cherries. Pour the cherries and the remaining ingredients into the bowl with the crumbs. Using your hands, mix the ingredients together until everything is fully incorporated. If the mixture is a bit dry and ingredients aren't holding together, add a tablespoon of the cherry juice. Divide the mixture into 6 equal sized portions. Roll each portion into a thick log about 5" long. Tap the top and bottom to make the ends relatively flat and the log consistent in shape from end to end. Roll each log in the reserved crumbs. Wrap each in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. To serve, slice into rounds and arrange on a platter. These logs can be kept in the refrigerator or frozen.
