I tried this recipe last year since I had left over dates to use. To my surprise they were a huge hit with family and friends. Great coffee cookie! I made them again this year and now they are a part of my Christmas Cookie baking ritual.

Nobody in this house is fond of dates, (the dates were a gift and were quite fresh) but these cookies are really VERY nice. They hold their shape well and look very much like huge chocolate chip cookies. However, you'll need to grease the cookie sheets as the cookies will stick a little. The dates taste far better than raisins in a cookie recipe, in my opinion. Happy baking!


i made this recipe as part of a massive holiday cookie bake. if i were doing it at any other time i probably would have been pleased with the process. the end product is fine, if a little bland (even with the addition of nutmeg and cinammon.) i might use half brown sugar in the future. as it was, the recipe took a while to put together, even using ye trusty hand mixer. chopping the dates was an enormous bother, and frankly i will in the future stay away from any cookie recipe that requires sifting flour. finally, due to their richness, the cookie do take a full 12-15 minutes to bake. this is about twice the bake time i need to finish baking this weekend. i will certainly keep the cookie dough on hand - my husband loved them, as they weren't too sweet for him. but quick and easy these ain't. well - for a more organized baker they might be. at any rate, if you have to make a lot of them, i'd suggest doing two batches at a time to save the hassle of doing everything twice.
