Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Cook together date filling ingredients until thick. Preheat oven to 350°F. Cream brown sugar and shortening. Add eggs one at a time. Add oatmeal, flour, and water mixture alternately until completely mixed. This makes a very stiff dough.
  • Roll out on a lightly floured counter to 1/4 inch thick. Cut out with a small to medium round cookie cutter. (You must use the same cutter for all cookies because this is a "sandwich" type cookie.)
  • Bake 12-15 minutes until golden brown, but not too dark. Cool cookies completely. Then spread about 1 heaping tsp. of date filling on one cookie and top with another cookie.

Special Equipment Needed


The individual cookies will be quite crisp when cooled. Fill them a day or two before you want to eat them and place in an airtight container. The filled cookie will soften up "just enough". This is a very old recipe, and one of my favorites, and, yes, my Grandma Kirk really did make these cookies every year. One of these cookies is hearty enough for a quick breakfast on the run. If you are serving them for dessert you may want to us a smaller round cutter. ~Jan~
