  1. In a large bowl, cream shortening, white sugar and brown sugar. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; mix into the sugar mixture until well blended. Divide dough in half, cover and refrigerate for 4 hours.
  2. To make the filling: Combine dates, sugar, water, lemon juice and salt in saucepan. Cook over low heat until mixture thickens.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Roll out dough on a floured surface to a thickness of 1/8 of an inch. Cut out an even number of 2 1/2 inch circles. Place half of the dough circles 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Brush circles lightly with water and place a tablespoonful of filling in the center of each one. Place the remaining circles on top and crimp the edges with your fingers or a fork. Make two tiny slits at the top of each cookie and brush the tops with a beaten egg. Sprinkle with sugar.
  5. Bake 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly colored. Let cool on wire racks.

I was worried about trying these cookies after reading the review, but these turned out great for me! I was careful in adding the flour, but did add it all and had no trouble rolling them out. ...

Either the recipe is incomplete or something is wrong. I wasted a batch of I dont know what. The " dough" didn't turn into a dough. It was just a dry crumbly mixture. I had to throw it away.

vry good and easy to make
