Sticky dough, but worth the effort

I love these - they are tasty and not too sweet - might put more dates in next time, as they add so much to the taste and texture. Will make again

These cookies had a dry texture resembling cardboard. The dough was too soft to form logs; make bar cookies instead. (Tip: If you still want to make these cookies and don't have a food processor, a hand-held blender works fine for pureeing the dates in Step 4.)

These came out so moist and tasty while not being sickly sweet, and the logs are much easier to deal with than rolled or drop cookies. I added about a tablespoon of fresh ginger to the puree blend just because I'm a ginger lover. The dates add nice sweetness and moisture. Funny though - my logs flattened out so that they resembled french bread by the time they were done. Not sure if that's intentional or if I need to add more flour for high altitudes. Next time I might use turbinado instead of regular sugar as the topping.
