I made a half batch of these cookies to see if I they were any good and they got rave reviews. I doubled the recipe for a family cookie exchange last night-- I need a lot and they yield 7 1/2 dozen but that's not the reason I chose them, I chose them because they really are quite unique and definitely one of the best cookies I've ever tasted. It is a time consuming cookie but so worth the effort. I chopped my dates very fine as well as the cherries and I used cashews as my nut since it's what I had around the house. A definite crowd pleaser!
