Date Filling for Hamentaschen

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by PalatablePastime

I can't always find date filling at the market. So I am posting this in case I ever need a recipe for it. Recipe from food down under. Filling should be refrigerated, and you may freeze it as well.

This is totally delicious!! Not only are the dates, golden raisins, and walnuts great together--the little bit of lemon rind and cinnamon adds a kind of old world quality that's just wonderful! I scaled the recipe down to 1/2 cup and minced everything by hand (since I don't have a food processor); then used it as the date filling for 24 cookies of Recipe #100557 (which I've also reviewed). Perfect!! This recipe is most definitely a keeper! Thanks for posting it, Sue L!!
