- Use a teaspoon to drop mix onto ungreased cookie sheet.

I found this one on the back of a bag of Sweet Harvest Chopped Dates, too. I halved this recipe and liked it a lot. The only change I might make is to use dates that don't have sugar added. The dates really bake up lovely, though--these cookies were a pleasant surprise.
What a great cookie!!!!!! So good and chewy and with the dates and oatmeal, you don't feel as guilty eating them. The dates come out so sweet like candy!! Loved them!
Wow, what a cookie, really nice, big, thick, crisp and tender cookie, with nice flavour, great tasting with an excellant texture. I loved the addition of the cinnamon, and the dates were a lovely surprise. Thanks so much for sharing.
