There is many recipes for cakes or cookies with date filling. In most of them, the way to make the filling is to cook the date with water and some more ingredients. I found that date filling is much more tasty if processed it with liquid in food processor to a paste instead cooking it. Also the filling is more tasty if using some tasty liquid like wine, orange juice etc instead water . Amiram Eilat Israel
These came out so pretty - made them for a baby shower, and they looked lovely on the cookie tray. I made them exactly as written except for subbing butter for the margerine. They are a really good cookie - thanks for the recipe !
