A new addition to my Christmas cookie list. Very tasty!!!!. I had to bake them longer than the recipe said, at least 11 minutes.

A little too sweet for us. Perhaps a decrease in thea mount of dates would help.

I substituted candied pineapple (chopped) for the citrus peel. I liked these very much.
