DIRECTIONS

  • Sift together the flour, soda, salt and cinnamon. Toss the dates with a small amount of the flour mixture (to prevent sticking) and set aside.
  • ln a large bowl, cream the butter with the sugars until smooth. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix thoroughly.
  • Mix in the dry ingredients and combine thoroughly.
  • Stir in the nuts and dates.
  • With your hands, press and mold the dough into a long, smooth roll about 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Wrap in waxed paper, twisting the ends to hold the roll in shape. Chill until firm - several hours or overnight. (To speed up the chilling process, place in freezer.).
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. (Moderately hot).
  • With a thin, sharp knife cut into thin slices 1/16" to 1/8" thick. Place on ungreased baking sheet, slightly apart.
  • Bake until lightly browned, about 6 to 8 minutes.
