This sounds just like the old recipe I have been searching all over for. The cookies are delish....

  3. Add nuts and dates and vanilla.
  4. Cook til thick-not more than a minute.

  6. Begin cookie dough by creaming softened butter with brown sugar add eggs and remaining ingredients.
  7. Dough will form large ball divide in half and roll out: spread with half the date-nut filling.
