Date Filled Oatmeal Cookies

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Martina

This makes a huge batch, cut the recipe in half if desired. These cookies are best if they sit for a couple of days to soften. They freeze well also. From Company's Coming Cookie cookbook.

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.
