 Ingredients List

  • ------------------------------DATE NUT FILLING------------------------------
  • 1 pk (8 oz.) dates; cut up
  • 1/2 c Water
  • 1/2 c Sugar
  • 1 tb Lemon juice
  • 1/4 c Chopped nuts


1 c Butter; room temperature
2 c Packed brown sugar
2 Eggs
1 tb Lemon juice
1 ts Vanilla
4 c All purpose flour; sifted
1 ts Baking soda
1 ts Salt

Mix together all filling ingredients in small saucepan; cook over
medium/low heat until dates are soft. Cool; set aside. Make dough by
creaming together butter and sugar in large bowl until light and fluffy.
Add eggs; beat well. Add lemon juice and vanilla; stir. Sift flour; add
baking soda and salt. Sift again. Add to creamed mixture; mix well.
(Mixture will be somewhat soft.) Divide dough in half; place on
well-floured surface. Roll each out into rectangles about 1/2 inch thick.
Spread evenly with filling. Roll up as for jelly roll. Cover with plastic
wrap. Slice 1/8 to 1/4 thick with sharp knife. Place on greased cookie
sheets. Bake at 400 for about 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a
wire rack. (Cookies freeze well.) Yield 4-5 dozen.
