These Cookies Sound Great! Am printing them off to put into my Cookie Recipe Book. Bet those filings would also go well for Cake Fillings.

Many Thanks for sharing.

Diane, I just found these, I was looking on the recipe exchange! LOL

Thank you so much for posting these, the plain dough and date filling looks just like what Dad wanted, although I've got to find a way to reduce his sugar consumption. Sigh.
