 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Sugar
  • 1/2 c Shortening
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 c Milk
  • 3 1/2 c Flour
  • 2 ts Cream of tartar
  • 1 ts Soda
  • 1 ts Vanilla


2 c Dates, chopped
3/4 c Sugar
3/4 c Warm water
ds Lemon juice
2 tb Flour

Mix cooky ingredients together in large bowl.

Roll out on lightly floured board to a thinner thickness than regular
cookies. Cut with any large round cutter that is big enough to cover the
filling (about 2 1/2 to 3 inches in diameter).

Place one round on cookie sheet and place about 1 tsp of filling in the
center. Dampen the edges with water and lay second round over the top.
Press the edges together to seal.

Bake at 375øF for about 15 minutes or until they start to turn light brown.
Cool on a rack. (If they last that long... ;+})

** Filling **

Mix the filling ingredients together in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook
until the dates have soaked up the sugar/water liquid. Remove from heat and
allow to cool.

Optional fillings:
: Mix 1 cup of dates and 1 cup of raisins. Blend with other filling
ingredients and cook. This makes a mincemeat flavor filling.

: Use your favorite preserves: grape, strawberry, cherry, raspberry,
apple, etc... DO NOT USE JELLY.
