These are a tradition with my DH's family and really are delicious. They aren't difficult to make and look impressive on the holiday cookie platter.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make the date filling by heating the ingredients in a saucepan until thick, stirring the entire time to prevent scorching.
  2. Mix the dough ingredients in the order given and divide into two balls. Roll out each ball to 1/2 inch thick. Spread with the date filling and roll up like a jelly roll. Put the rolls in the refrigerator overnight or for at least several hours.
  3. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Working with one roll at a time, slice 1/4" to 1/2" slices and place on a greased baking sheet.
  4. Bake 12 - 15 minutes until cookies are a light golden brown. Cool on cookie sheets for several minutes, then move to racks to cool completely.
