      I added nuts into the date mix and we really loved the addition. I have made them several times both ways and we love them both!

      These were a big hit in our house. And I didn't feel bad watching my husband and daughter gobble them up since all in all, this is way better for them than any of the other cookies we make around here. So good- we're making more!

      These turned out excellent! I had a date bar recipe I used to use but this is much better. Everyone in my family loved them. This is one I know I will make over and over. Thanks for posting it!
