Instructions:

Prepare the cookies: Remove pits from Dates. In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the cookie ingredients until you get a chunky mixture that holds together.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a rounded tablespoon, scoop out portions of the mixture, roll into balls and place onto the prepared cookie sheet. Press a deep fingerprint into the middle of each ball.

Prepare the filling: Remove pits from Dates. In a clean food processor bowl, add the filling ingredients and mix until you get a very smooth mixture. Using a rounded teaspoon, drop the filling into the indentation of each cookie.

Refrigerate overnight in a sealed container.
