A special recipe to share today, Date-Filled Cookies. Inked by Nana in her very distinct handwriting, the filled cookies have such a rich sweetness and are reminiscent of days past. The tender cookies make a delightful presentation with their dark contrast of the date filling and the lightly toasted color of the cookies themselves. They come as quite a surprise to some palettes today, as dates aren't used in too many recipes nowadays.
Mom actually has to special order a Date Bar Mix from the grocery store, as they've stopped carrying them due to popularity - but are SUCH a treat to enjoy!
I do hope you'll give these a try and keep the dates ever-present in cooking for generations to come.
