I bought a new book about cookies. It is a tamil book and there were lots and lots of recipes for cookies. I had a box of dates to be used and so I tried out this recipe which uses dates. The cookies were crispy and crunchy and delicious with dates flavour. I took it to Theni and shared it with FIL and SIL. My niece and nephew also liked these cookies. My daughter was not so keen but PK lied it very much.
