Date Filled Brown Sugar Cookies
By Karla Allen secondsister
When our children were teens we lived in RURAL Maine...25 miles from a town of any size. My husband pastored a little country church in a tiny community. This hearty home-made cookie always brings back fond memories of special hard-working people who knew how to cook from scratch and enjoy the fruit of their labor.
In small saucepan,cook dates, white sugar and water on medium high heat till thickened, stirring often.

Sift dry ingredients, flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon together in bowl and set aside.
Then, add eggs, vanilla and milk.
