I make a cylindrical roll from the chilled dough, roll in waxed paper, and slice to bake. It makes better cookies, less dry, and saves a lot of time and mess. Family favorite.
great recipe... I don't add the sugar to the date mixture, as dates are so sugary to start (and it's still plenty sweet). easy to make, though very time consuming - still worth it!
These were very tasty, but it was a fair amount of work.
First time I made these cookies - they are absolutely delicious.
LOVED these cookies! They are one of the best date cookies I have made to date. I am so happy I ran across this cookie recipe. I will be making these for Christmas for my cookie trays from now on!
I saw the picture of these and had a flash back to my childhood. My grandma used to make these. I have to get some dates this weekend but I HAVE to make these now or I will crave them like crazy. Thanks for the picture memory.
Wow! what an exceptional treat Martina. These taste just like the cookies my dh's mom use to make. I have hunted high and low for this recipe, since she passed, thanks so much for sharing. My dh is now a happy man, they are his favorite cookies. These delicious, quick and easy, rich, date cookies freeze very well. I used the cookies in my christmas tins this year and everyone asked for the recipe...Kudos Kato
family loved them - "better than Nana's" can't beat that!! cookie is VERY rich!!
This makes lots but they are oh so good. For the filling, I needed to make an additional 1/2 recipe. I did find that by bringing the dates to a boil with the sugar and water, that I could puree them in the Vita-Mix and eliminated the need to chop them first. These will be a great addition to my holiday cookie trays.
Really good but should have made mine thicker. I halved the recipe because I hate making cookies. They were just like my mom's. Thanks
