Directions

  1. To prepare the filling, cook the dates, 3/4 cup of sugar and water over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until thickened. Stir in the nuts, remove from the heat and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  3. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar. Stir in the eggs, sour cream and almond extract. Sift together the flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon, stir into the creamed mixture. Drop a rounded teaspoon of dough onto an unprepared cookie sheet, place a scant teaspoon of the filling on top of it, then top with an additional 1/2 teaspoon of dough. Repeat with the rest of the dough.
  4. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until slightly browned.

I made this cookie for a bridal shower ...it was a hit ! the cookie is soft and moist with a very tasty filling...the dough spreads during baking, so be sure to use a scant amount for both top and bottom cookies...enjoy !

The recipe is a little time consuming and messy to work with, but the results were well worth the effort. My hubby gives them an A+
