Directions

  1. To prepare the filling, cook the dates, 3/4 cup of sugar and water over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until thickened. Stir in the nuts, remove from the heat and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  3. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar. Stir in the eggs, sour cream and almond extract. Sift together the flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon, stir into the creamed mixture. Drop a rounded teaspoon of dough onto an unprepared cookie sheet, place a scant teaspoon of the filling on top of it, then top with an additional 1/2 teaspoon of dough. Repeat with the rest of the dough.
  4. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until slightly browned.

I made this cookie for a bridal shower ...it was a hit ! the cookie is soft and moist with a very tasty filling...the dough spreads during baking, so be sure to use a scant amount for both top and bottom cookies...enjoy !

The recipe is a little time consuming and messy to work with, but the results were well worth the effort. My hubby gives them an A+

My mom made these every year. I like this version better than hers. She would stuff the date with a walnut and dip in the dough and bake. I like the filling idea better. These are a wonderful variation of comfort cookies from my childhood. They will have a place in my Christmas cookie baskets this year. Thank you for sharing!

I was so glad to be able to find this recipe. I have had this cookie every year since I was a small child. My grandmother has made them every year. Since she is 91 this year, she won't be making cookies. I had the recipe in an old cookbook, but we had house fire last month and I haven't been able to lay my hands on the recipe. This will make my family so happy to be able to have these cookies this year despite the turmoil that the fire has caused in our lives. They are time consuming, but so worth the effort.
