Directions

  1. Blend flour, salt, and baking soda. Add brown sugar, margarine, eggs and molasses. Stir until smooth. Blend in oats.
  2. Roll dough out on floured board, about 1/8 inch thick. Cut with 2 1/2 inch round cutter. Place half of the rounds on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. To Make Filling: Stir until boiling: 1 cup cut-up pitted dates, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/4 cup water. Mixture will be thick. Stir in 1/2 cup chopped nuts. Cool before using.
  4. Spread 1 teaspoon filling on center of each cookie. Cut a cross in the middle of the remaining rounds. Place over filling-topped rounds. Press down on the edges to seal. Bake 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

These are really delicious! As my cookies were palm size big each, one was enough to fill. I love the molasses taste in the dough. My husband loved them; although one was enough, he ate 3 at once! My dough wasn't smooth enough and I added 3 tablespoons of yoghurt water. I also used less butter and some olive oil to make it healthier. Thanks for the 5 star recipe.

Good cookie, very heavy and filling. They were not the easiest to roll out, I think using quick oats would have made rolling easier than the large flake I used. They took me a long time to put together and I don't think I would make them again.
