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!

Wow, these are great cookies. Made them exactly to recipe and the flavor, texture. The ginger is just barely noticable.....very nice. Hint: Let the cookies bake about 5 minutes then press them down. Use a 375F oven.

The dates, coconut and ginger are a very unusual, but GOOD combination! The flavors 'marry' together very well. These cookies are moreish; deliciously chewy and sweet. And they taste even better the next day! Great stuff, Sueie!
