Date Rocks

on February 23, 2015

The recipe for today has a very strange name. Date Rocks. Are these cookies hard to bite? Are they going to look like little rocks when they’re done? The name conjures up so many questions! They only way to find out was to make them and see what happened. Grandma isn’t here to ask, so we’ll just have to go for it. I shouldn’t have worried.

Date Rocks

This recipe has the “Good” connotation!

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Date Rocks

Cream together:

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

1 cup butter

Mix in:

2 eggs, well beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon baking soda in 3 Tablespoons hot water

3 cups flour

1 1/2 cups dates, chopped (1 package)

1 cup walnuts

Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes (there was, as usual, no time or temp given).


You can see how full of dates and nuts the batter is.


I used my trusty scoop to again, make them all the same size.


They came out beautifully!


These cookies are so tasty and so pretty!


They’re full of crunchy walnuts and chewy, sweet dates. I really shouldn’t have worried about these cookies. They don’t look like rocks. Maybe the name comes from they’re looking like rocks BEFORE they’re baked. I don’t know. I do know that they’re some of the most beautiful cookies I’ve ever made, and some of the most delicious.
