      I LOVED these!! I used dates that I chopped into small-ish pieces in mine. And they were perfect! They are soft inside, slightly crunchy outside. Excellent cookies!! The spices are spot on as well. I didn't put the icing on mine as I didn't feel they needed it. They were fantastic just as they come. I will make these again and again and again! Thank you SO much for sharing!!
