Ready In:




  • Make the date filling by heating the ingredients in a saucepan until thick, stirring the entire time to prevent scorching.
  • Mix the dough ingredients in the order given and divide into two balls. Roll out each ball to 1/2 inch thick. Spread with the date filling and roll up like a jelly roll. Put the rolls in the refrigerator overnight or for at least several hours.
  • Heat oven to 350 degrees. Working with one roll at a time, slice 1/4" to 1/2" slices and place on a greased baking sheet.
  • Bake 12 - 15 minutes until cookies are a light golden brown. Cool on cookie sheets for several minutes, then move to racks to cool completely.

I am a native Californian, born in the Los Angeles area, college in far northern California and now living in southern part of the San Francisco Bay Area. I love kids and animals. I am an active volunteer at my two teenage daughters' high school as well as a Girl Scout leader. We have two guinea pigs, one Dalmatian, one cockatiel, and one quarter-horse to keep us busy. I had a career as a marketing writer before I became a full-time mom and volunteer, but I still write all the time as well as participate in a monthly book club. I stay active and have Jazzercized for over 25 years on a regular basis. I also am trying to do some yoga now and ride horses for fun. I have loved getting involved in the RecipeZaar games and learning how to post the photos. I am currently playing on the Zaar World Tour and it is lots of fun! Have been a sports fan since childhood and definitely have enjoyed getting to know about hockey since we have a very successful NHL franchise in our area: Go Sharks! <img src="" width="399" height="270"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" width="300" height="220"> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" width="399" height="150"> <img src="" width="399" height="140"> <img src=""width="290" height="140"> <img src="" border="0" alt="F and G Swap">
