    Epi-curious's Note:

    These cookies have two layers of delicious and light sugar cookies sandwiched with date filling. I even loved these as a kid, when dates weren't COOL!

      These are wonderful and I'm not even a fan of dates. I had to try them, I love recipes from Grandma's
      they are usually always the best.
