Directions

  1. . Pre-heat oven to 350F. Position rack in the center of the oven. Prepare 2 large parchment lined baking sheets.
  2. . > WET mix: In a large bowl, beat together the butter, oil and brown sugar until creamy. Add the date butter paste and egg whites. Continue to beat until lightly fluffy.
  3. . > DRY mix: In a medium bowl, whisk ALL the ingredients together except for the nuts and dates. Set aside.
  4. . > Assembly: Pour the DRY mix into the WET mix. Use a strong spatula to combine until all traces of flour have disappeared. Do not over mix. Lastly, add in the dates and nuts. With the aid of an ice-cream scoop, make packed, levelled volumes of cookie dough and place 8 mounds per baking sheet. This batter does not really spread much. Then, strongly flatten the dough with the bottom of a glass.
  5. . BAKE for 20 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and wait another 10 minutes before transferring them onto a rack to cool. Repeat with the second pan.
  6. . Store in a cookie tin or freeze with a parchment paper package and into a freezer bag.
  7. . Flavourful wishes from Claudia's kitchen...FOODESSA.com
