      I don't need to try these to know they are good. I make these all the time but I add orange juice not water and no sugar.

      Another variation: Whole wheat flour instead of white, and for the date filling I used only 2/3 cup liquid and 2T sugar, along with 1/2 cup of candied ginger. Processed in food processor in 2 batches (divide sugar, water & ginger, too). Didn't need to cook it before spreading it over crust. Great stuff! Thanks for the recipe
