"My mother used to bake these cookies for a special occasion, Christmas or for weddings. This recipe has been in the family for 100 years and was passed down from my grandmother to my mother. Hope you enjoy it."

whole pitted dates
Maybe memories of growing up with these cookies added to the appreciation of them. Coming to them fresh, they were expensive, a lot of work, and nothing spectacular. The thick batter was more like thin dough and trying to dip the dates didn't get them coated. If I put more batter on them, it just slid off in the oven. These were just not worth the money and time. I'd rather stuff the dates with walnut halves and roll them in sugar. Sorry.
Try adding more heavy cream to make a pancake like batter.
