Ok, I know I have said on many of the cookie recipes that they make me feel like home. And that I am crazy about them. And that they are the best… what can I do? I have a really serious infatuation with this little baked pastries. Like little pieces of pure happiness and joy in every bite.  This recipe is a classic in my kitchen, easy to make, delicious and I always have some dates in my pantry.

Enjoy this Israeli classic people. It is TASTY!
