Recipe by Jenny Ann

Recipe came from my husband's grandmother. They are much easier to make than they sound. I have halved the recipe successfully; and I have used jam instead of the cooked dates although nothing beats the original recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the dates in sugar and water, until tender. Cool before using.
  2. Blend shortening and sugar, and then add remaining ingredients.
  3. Roll out thin on a floured surface, cutting into circles.
  4. Place filling on bottom circle, top with a second circle, and seal edges.
  5. Bake until brown at 350 degrees - about 10 minutes, depending on the size of your circles.
