  3. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden.

This is a wonderful recipe that is totally addicting. My son gave me the recipe and he said it was being passed all around offices on the east and west coast. A good change from chocolate chips.

A good, soft cookie. The walnuts and dates make it really different from other holiday cookies.
