Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes
Total: 30 minutes



  • 1 cup of dates, pitted and chopped
  • 1/2 cup of nuts, finely chopped (such as walnuts or pecans)
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup of powdered sugar


  1. In a small saucepan, combine the dates, nuts, sugar, water, and vanilla extract. Cook over medium heat until the mixture thickens, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and let cool.

  2. In a mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and powdered sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually add in the flour and mix until a dough forms.

  3. On a floured surface, roll out the dough into a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick. Spread the date and nut mixture evenly over the dough.

  4. Starting from one of the long sides, tightly roll the dough into a log. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

  5. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  6. Slice the chilled dough log into 1/4 inch thick rounds and place them on the prepared baking sheet.

  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden. Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

  8. Serve and enjoy!
