Recipe by Ceezie
READY IN: 25mins
YIELD: 4-6 dozen




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cream the shortening, butter and sugar together. Add the eggs and vanilla. Mix together well.
  • Add flour, baking soda, spices and oatmeal. Mix in dates and chocolate chips.
  • Scoop out a tbsp of dough onto a parchement paper lined cookie sheet. Get 2 plates one with a bit of water on it and one with sugar in the raw. Dip the bottom of a glass in the water then in the sugar in the raw. Press this on top of the cookie just to flatten, repeat with each cookie.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes.
  • Option: Instead of using milk chocolate chips get a chocolate bar break along the individual lines and lay on a cookie as it comes out of the oven. Top with another hot cookie and move to rack to cool.
