    Brenda.'s Note:

    A delicious sugarless cookie filled with dates, raisins, apples and nuts. You won't miss the sugar! From the " Cooking with the Horse and Buggy People" cookbook. I have edited the recipe to include draining the fruit after "plumping". Thank you Paula!

      Nice change of pace for a healthier cookie! Loved the dates, apples and nuts in this cookie. Because others stated it was a bit dry I was not overly concerned with totally draining the liquids from the fruit mixture and left a few tablespoons in there and that seemed to work for me. Moist and delicious cookie with a great texture that stood up to storage. Loved the fact that these are sugarless. Plan on making more for my Dad as a special treat that won't affect his sugar levels. Made in honor of those we all have loved but have lost through cancer during the Think Pink tag event. Love ya Bren!

      These cookies were okay. They seemed a little dry to me. I think more raisins might have helped? Not sure if I will make them again but what can you expect from a healthy cookie? So as far as healthy cookies go it was good.

      we took paulas idea and added it to these cookies. Also added a little splenda...about 1/4 cup and a handful of chocolate chips. It was a big hit here. Thank you Brenda
