    This is a unique family recipe that is originally from my great, great aunt. I have not tried it, but submitted it in response to a request. I'm sorry I don't know the serving size or exactly how long it takes to bake!

      The dough was way too wet. Wasted half of it trying to roll it out. Much more flour needed!

      Great cookies!! I added a little bit of vanilla to the dough recipe. Made a double batch but needed to add more flour. No problem, it worked out fine. When I put the filling on the dough, I pressed it down a little with flour on my fingertips. This kept the top dough from splitting. I did one extra thing...I made a thin glaze of confectioners sugar and water, and brushed it over the tops of each cookie with a pastry brush. Let them harden before packing. I froze them and pull a few out every few days to enjoy! PERFECT! And just like I remembered as a child! Thanks Kree!!

      My DH and I really enjoyed these. I made these this morning and we had them with a cup of Rooibos tea. Instead of butter, I used vegan margarine, instead of eggs, I used flax seed meal and hemp milk instead of dairy. My aim was to keep this Vegan. I didn't have any dates so used cut up un-sulphurated apricots and prunes instead. Because I did this I needed a bit more water as the apricots have a drier consistency then dates. I cut the cookies in 3" rounds. They spread to a 4" round, so they got big. I left them in the oven for about 20 mts. which was a bit long as I wasn't sure how long to leave them in there. I suspect 15 mts. would have been enough. It seems the longer you leave these in the crispier they become which is fine with me, I didn't mind that at all.
