Ingredients

1 c
butter, softened
1 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
2 c
quick-cooking oats, uncooked
2 c
all-purpose flour
1 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
salt
1/2 c
buttermilk
1 3/4 c
chopped dates or raisins
3/4 c
sugar
1/2 c
boiling water
1/2 tsp
vanilla extract

Step-By-Step

1Cream butter in a large mixing bowl; gradually add 1 cup brown sugar, beating at medium speed of an electric mixer until the mixture is light and fluffy.

2Combine oats, flour, soda and salt; stir well. Add to the creamed mixture alternately with the buttermilk, beginning and ending with the flour mixture.

3Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool slightly on the cookie sheets; transfer to wire racks and let cool completely.

4Combine the chopped dates (or raisins), 3/4 cup sugar, boiling water, and vanilla in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is thickened. Remove from the heat, and let cool. Spread half of the cookies with the date mixture. Top with the remaining cookies.
