Oh I just love these little gems. My mother used to make these when I was a little girl and they were always one of my favorites. The recipe had long since been lost and I was heart broken. When I found your recipe I couldn't believe it. We tripled the recipe and included them in our 2010 holiday trays for family and friends. When cooking the date mixture it smells so good. DH loved them and told me to make several times a year, not just for the holidays. Thank you so much for sharing the cherished recipe with us.
