  1. Nice recipe but not at all like Awrey’s product.
     
  2. Still making them in Livonia, Michigan today. Yumm !
     
  3. These are quite tasty. I felt the cookie mix needed a bit more butter or less dry ingredients, so I will reduce the flour and oats a bit next time, but the cookies were delicious.
     
  4. Another winner ElaineAnn - these are delicious. I love desserts made with dates and these were so easy to make. I did add about 1/4 cup of ground flax meal in the mix, just for a little more healthiness. I will make these again for the Christmas cookie tray! Thanks for posting. Made for national Diabetes Month in the Diabetic Forum!
     
  5. I never cared for sweets. I bake for my family, this is a recipe I sampled! Delicious!!!! My family agrees.
