Simple Date Cookies


Simple Cookery Date Oatmeal Cookies

I love using dates in cookies.   Somehow it makes the cookie healthier!

Simple Date Cookies

1 stick butter, softened

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

3/4 cup self-rising flour

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 and 1/2 cups old fashioned oats

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1 cup chopped dates

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream butter and sugars together.  Beat in eggs and vanilla.  Gradually add flour and mix well.  Stir in oats, dates and nuts.  Drop by tablespoonful onto greased cookie sheet two inches apart.  Bake 11-12 minutes.  Cool at least 2 minutes on cookie sheet before removing to finish cooling on a clean, dry linen towel.

Gosh, these sound good. I'm on a bit of a date kick but don't have a lot of recipes for them. Saving this to try. Dates and oatmeal and brown sugar. Some of my favorite things!!
