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.
