I had some leftover dates from Christmas that I needed to use so I tried this recipe. These turned out so tender and delicious. The kids ate them right up. This recipe is a keeper.

Thank you so much for posting this recipe! My Texan grandmother (born 1910, she was old school) made this exact cookie for me as a kid in the 70's. I never had her recipe, so when I saw yours.....

Loved it, and the other day i didnt have dates so i used raisins and walnuts which also tastes amazing!
