I made these in hopes of my kids not liking them. I had visions of Will and I sitting in our little tea-drinking spot, drinking gallons of tea over one or two cookies here and there. Bonding like.
No such luck. I tried. They were good enough for the kids OR they just condescended to eating them.. either way. The batch was gone in about 48 hours. Not to sound like a greedy pig or anything... but now I'd like to hide a few of them next time.
They use dates. What's a date? It's this fig-looking thing. My kids said that it reminded them of a larvae they studied in biology. I was hoping THAT ALONE would have kept the critters out.
See what I mean? Kind of weird. Anyway, you need a small truckload of them to make this.
And if you are looking for this on google, do not put "date images".. er uh.. yeah.
Anyway, the recipe!
2 1/2 cups of chopped dates (food processor works fine)
1 cup of butter
1 cup of brown sugar
Mix all in mixer.
Add: 4 cups of wheat flour/ or spelt/ kamut, etc.
1 cup rolled oats
1. t baking soda
1 t. salt
2 cups of chopped pecans
1/3 cup flax seed.
Roll into little blobs. Bake for 350* for 13 minutes.
