Datenight cookies

  3. Stir until ingredients are completely combined.
  4. Then mix in the dates and pecans.
  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and scoop balls of dough (should make 18) onto the sheet.
  6. Press the dough down to ½- inch thick circles.
  7. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until slightly firm.
  8. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.

The Verdict

Pretty good cookies.  The texture was just right, the recipe wasn’t too hard, the sweetness was good, and they were nice and moist.  But the cookies struck me as kind of bland, actually!  Even with the pecans and the dates to provide little chunks, they were still kind of lacking.  Next time I make them, I’m going to try adding white chocolate and macadamia nuts.
