AFAM - A Fruit A Month - DATES

Has announced this months fruit - DATES!!

I love dates. Anything tat has to do uth dates - is an automatic favorite of mine....and Israel, as you know is the land of milk & honey...and dates. Of-Course.
The best dates are Mahajoul dates. They are soft and as sweet as can be. You can find the best dates either in Jericho or by the Kinneret.

So - back to this month AFAM.
Tjis is one of my favorite recipes I found on the TAPUZ forum. The recipe was given quite a while ago by Akavishon. Since then I have made it a million times. And nobody dislikes them. They are eaten in a scond.

Rolled Date Cookies

Dough:
200 grams soft butter
200 ml vegetable oil
200 ml water
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
5 cups all purpose flour

Filling:
400 grams date spread
100 grams walnuts, chopped
dash cinnamon


Mix all the dough ingredients together in a mixer until dough is soft and pliable.
Heat oven to 180 C.

Divide dough into 4 parts.
Roll each part into a thin rectangle.
Spread date spread, sprinkle nuts and cinnamon. Roll tightly and put on parchment paper. Slice 1" slices - but only 3/4 away.
Bake 20 minutes until golden. Cool a bit and slice all the way. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Keep in airtight box.

For us neophytes, an explanation of exactly how to roll out the dough would be helpful. Also, I didn't have date spread, so I put a 10 oz container of Sunsweet dates and a little Silan (date honey) in my food processor and got it as smooth as possible. I also put the cinnamon in the dough instead of in the mix, like my husband's mother does. They turned out delicious but figuring out how to roll the dough almost made me cry.
