Date Filled Oat Cookies

In our family we used to make great date filled oat cookies.
I tried to make them but these were not great, only ok.
I used this recipe from "" it was not what I wanted but the filling was right!
Could have used some Jack...

Short on Grandmas right now. Will have to keep searching. I seem to remember a folded cookie.


  • 1 c. brown sugar

  • 1 c. butter

  • 3 eggs

  • 2 c. oatmeal

  • 2 1/2 c. flour

  • 3/4 c. sour milk

  • 1 tsp. soda in flour

  • .

  • Filling:

  • 1 pkg. dates, finely chopped

  • 1 c. brown sugar

  • 1 c. water


Cook filling until thickened. Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and mix well. Add flour and soda alternately with sour milk, then add oatmeal. Roll out on floured board, cut with cookie cutter. Put one teaspoon of dough filling on cookie and cover with another cookie.

While looking for something totally unrelated recently, I found my grandma's cinnamon bun recipe, in her handwriting. Also short on grandmas, but so happy to have the one and only bun recipe to remind me of her. Hope the right date cookie recipe comes your way.

(By the way, I haven't attempted to actually make the buns yet... )
