Cookies are a great accompaniment to your coffee or tea. They come in various flavors and shapes. I whipped up these this afternoon using chopped dates.
These Date & Ginger Cookies proved popular with my guest and family. Loved this recipe, so quick and easy also very low in fat too. It was a definite winner with spicy flavor from ground ginger.
They are wonderful just as it is but you can dress them up with colored sugar or sprinkles if you want.
