    Sueie's Note:

    Popular cookie that is adaptable to different tastes, have used diced apricots instead of dates, and have also made this into bars, pressing the lot into a tray and cutting into bars when almost cold.

      Addictive!! I loved the chewy texture of the dates and the coconut really made these a winner. I kept to your recipe exactly. I thought at first that they would be too dry because they were still rather crumbly when I was shaping them, but they were just right. Thanks for posting these, I'm off to make another batch!

      These are very good. I was looking for something different to do with dates instead of my date rolls (#332742) . DH liked them too. I used Splenda instead of sugar. I figured there was already so much sugar in these with the dates and coconut - why not....they came out fine. They didn't spread much so when I made the second batch I just put it all in an 8x8 pan and made bars. Baked at 375 for about 15 minutes. Thanks for posting!
