Something to serve during the holidays...

Top Review by Sydney Mike

To heck with the holidays ~ These wonderful tasties would be great anytime! I used the very moist Medjool dates, & along with the walnuts, I had a great addition to our mobile home's cookie give-away tomorrow! I'll be making these again, for sure, & am even looking forward to them during NEXT winter's holidays! [Made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block tag]
