I had some leftover dates from when I made the bacon-wrapped, blue cheese stuffed dates and I knew exactly what I had to make. But I don’t really know what they are called. They’re not really cookies. They could be no bake cookies. Or just date sweets. Whatever they are, they are delish.
They always end up on our sweets table at Christmas. I know when I’m making them, more than a few don’t make it to Christmas though.
Ingredients: pitted dates, sugar and chopped walnuts
Slice the dates open, don’t cut all the way through. Just butterfly them.
Stuff the inside with walnuts.
Then roll that date in the sugar. The date’s outside is pretty sticky, so the sugar will stick.
That’s it! Repeat until the bag of dates is empty.
