Ingredients

DATE FILLING

1
8 oz. pkg dates, chopped
1/4 c
sugar
3/4 c
water, warm

COOKIE

1/4 c
butter, unsalted
1/4 c
butter flavor shortening
1 c
dark brown sugar
1
egg, beaten
1/4 c
water, warm
1 Tbsp
vanilla
2 c
flour
3/4 tsp
baking soda
1/4 tsp

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Bring dates, water, and sugar to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring frequently, until dates are thickened, about 5 to 7 minutes. Set aside to cool (can be prepared the day before, if needed).
2
Cream butter and sugar with your mixer. Add in the egg, water and vanilla.
3
Stir together the flour, baking soda and salt. Gently blend the dry ingredients to the butter mixture.
4
Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease your cookie sheet or use a silicone baking mat.
5
Drop cookie dough by teaspoonfuls onto a lightly greased cookie sheet or use a silicon mat. Place about 1/2 teaspoon of date mixture on the top of each cookie, then a small dab of cookie dough on top of the date mixture.
6
Bake at 350° for 10 to 12 minutes. Cool 5 minutes on cookie sheet before moving to a cooling rack.
