Date Drop Cookies I
December 07, 2005

i made this recipe as part of a massive holiday cookie bake. if i were doing it at any other time i probably would have been pleased with the process. the end product is fine, if a little bland (even with the addition of nutmeg and cinammon.) i might use half brown sugar in the future. as it was, the recipe took a while to put together, even using ye trusty hand mixer. chopping the dates was an enormous bother, and frankly i will in the future stay away from any cookie recipe that requires sifting flour. finally, due to their richness, the cookie do take a full 12-15 minutes to bake. this is about twice the bake time i need to finish baking this weekend. i will certainly keep the cookie dough on hand - my husband loved them, as they weren't too sweet for him. but quick and easy these ain't. well - for a more organized baker they might be. at any rate, if you have to make a lot of them, i'd suggest doing two batches at a time to save the hassle of doing everything twice.
