    Simply exquisite flavor in these cookies--made them today for Thanksgiving (tomorrow.) Some friends stopped by and I ended up serving about 1/3 of them! They are wonderful--I love the taste of the cloves and nutmeg, and I am already a date fan. Really wonderful (and I made these in my food processor!)
