Date Nuggets

Little pop-in-your-mouth date cookies. You can add chopped nuts to these if you desire.

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup chopped dates


Cream the butter and sugar. Add in the egg and vanilla and mix well. Combine the flour, baking soda, and cinnamon in a bowl and then add to the mix. Add the chopped dates.

Chill the dough at least 2 hours or overnight.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Roll the dough into 1" balls and bake for 12-15 minutes until set and lightly golden.

Transfer to cooling rack and dust with powdered sugar.
