  2. Cream the shortening and brown sugar together. Mix in the egg and milk. Stir in the apples. Add the flour, baking soda, ground cinnamon, ground cloves, ground nutmeg. Stir in the nuts and dates.
  3. Either drop spoonfuls of dough onto a lightly greased cookie sheet or spread dough into a 13x18 inch lightly greased jelly roll pan. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 8 to 10 minutes for the cookies or 20 to 25 minutes for the bars. Let cool then ice, if desired.

DELICIOUS !!! I didn't use the dates or walnuts and instead used 2 cups of apple. VERY moist. Yummy with a light sour cream icing.

Moist and good keepers(if you hide them!). Substituted raisins for the dates. For a quick way to dress them up, if you don't have time to make frosting, simply shake cinnamon sugar over the cookies before putting them in the oven. Can't keep these around!

Yummmmm!!!! Perfect to make when you have lots of apples from your apple tree....I subbed an additional cup of apples instead of the dates and frosted with cream cheese frosting.
