      Another winner ElaineAnn - these are delicious. I love desserts made with dates and these were so easy to make. I did add about 1/4 cup of ground flax meal in the mix, just for a little more healthiness. I will make these again for the Christmas cookie tray! Thanks for posting. Made for national Diabetes Month in the Diabetic Forum!
