This is sort of a recipe I found in a cookbook but thought that changing a few of the ingredients would make it better. And it did. Well, it probably did because I didn't try the original recipe to compare to this one. The way the kids were eating them I will call these really good.
Date Oatmeal Sandwich Cookies
1 cup oatmeal
1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup dates
Chop the dates really fine, or put them in your food chopper or processor for a minute or so.
Mix together the dry ingredients. Cream sugar and butter, add in egg and mix well. Add dry ingredients and mix well.
Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Drop by tablespoons a few inches apart as these spread out to a thin cookie.
Bake at 350 degrees until brown, about 12 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on parchment paper. These cookies are thin and crispy.
When cookies are cooled put a bit of the minced dates on half of the cookies and top with the other half of the cookies to make a sandwich.
