    Connie K's Note:

    If you like a lightly spiced batter clinging to chunks of walnuts, dates and raisins, this cookie is for you! A friend brought this recipe to a cookie exchange, and it became an immediate family favorite. I've baked them every year since. It makes a big batch - 13 dozen - but I haven't tried to halve the recipe as they are too popular! You can decrease the amount a sugar a bit if using pre-chopped dates.

      Very good - a not too sweet wonderful texture cookie. I used 1 3/4 cups sugar because I used the pre-chopped dates. I could have kept it at 2 cups but they are still good. I would increase the spice too - maybe do a pumpkin pie spice to experiment. A nice big batch too - great for my church's cookie walk!
