You might think that the kids are helping me make cookies today. But no, it's just me. I thought I would try to make some of those old fashion oatmeal date filled cookies. I've bought them in stores, and I remember that my late sister-in-law Zelda used to make them. My husband and her husband who are brothers, used to rave over them.
Well here's what I tried.... Using the recipe below out of an older Purity cookbook, I tried making square oatmeal cookies, then putting a dollop of date filling in the center, then another square on top. They were just too big and thick.
Next, I decided I would cut out rounds, put a dollop of filling and pinch them up on three sides to make sort of a thumbprint cookie. That didn't work, so I thought I'd use up the bits of rolled dough in the centers of the thumbprint style cookies. It's just keeps getting worse and worse. Ha ha... when I look at this picture, I just can't believe how ugly they are.
These cookies never got the raves that Zelda's got, but you know, they are all gone now. So they tested a lot better than they looked.
Thanks For Noticing :)
