Simple Iced Date Cookies


Simple Cookery Date Oatmeal Cookies Iced
I hope you noticed my recent posts of recipes for Date Cookies and Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. These cookies taste great and are definitely different. However, they look very similar. While you can keep them separate during storage, it gets tricky when putting them on a serving platter.
I had a little leftover white chocolate almond bark and decided to experiment with it as an 'icing'. I melted the chocolate and dipped the bottom of the date cookies in it, just allowing it to cover the edges. Then I placed it on wax paper to cool. Not only were the results delicious, but the cookies were easily identified. This also works great to hide the bottom of the cookie if it gets a little overcooked!

I've seen something similar with milk chocolate and ginger cookies. Good idea to use the white and these date cookies. Sounds good to me.
