Okay, I know this is a bad picture, but there aren't any cookies left for a retake, and they're too good to make again, if you know what I mean.  You'll just have to take my word for it.  A little background for you - I bought a box of chopped dates for a specific recipe I wanted to try around the holidays, and I never got around to trying that recipe - not only that, but I forgot which recipe it was that I wanted to try.  So there I was, stuck with a box of chopped dates that I had no use for.  Thankfully there was a recipe for these cookies printed right there on the back of the box.  The family absolutely loved them - hope you do too.
