Fantastic cookies although they are somewhat labor-intensive. Try adding an egg then you won't need to add the extra tablespoons of water at the end. That makes them a little lighter and the dough easier to handle.
I remember my grandmother making these when I was a child. They rolled fine for me once I added the extra water recomended but you do get a bit extra filling. A GREAT addition to this that grandma used to do is to frost the top cookie with a lightly peppermint flavored frosting. Sounds odd maybe but it's a great flavor addition to the date and oatmeal!!
These were really good. The dough was a little difficult to roll probably because of the oats. I used rasins instead of dates. I doubled the recipe of both the filling and the dough. I filled the cookies FULL with the raisins and the ratio of dough to filling was perfect! Maybe others were skimpy with the filling or maybe dates fill the cookie differently! No matter....these were great....thanks Gordon! Oh...I also added a little cinnamon to my raisin mixture...yum!
Little date filled delights! Once i finally rolled the dough thin enough the cookies turned out amazing! although when the dough was thicker they turned out like tiny little biscuits which were kindof good too. try to use all of the filling it really makes a wonderful cookie
Excellent recipe! The cookie dough is so flavorful and combines really well with the sweet date compote. I think I made mine really big but that let me put a lot of filling in each - which turned out super. Mmm. I will make these again. The only thing I changed is that I added some cinnamon and some lemon juice to the dates.
For me these cookies were just O.K. but my family and co-workers really liked them. The filling was good but the cookie itself seemed to be missing something. They were a little time consuming to make and I also had plenty of filling leftover. Not sure if I will make these again or try a different recipe.
