Oatmeal and dates marry in a rich cookie-jar favorite. Make two batches if you want the cookie jar to stay full very long.

Ingredients

1
pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ oatmeal cookie mix
1/2
cup butter or margarine, softened
1
egg
1
tablespoon water
1
package (8 oz) chopped dates
3/4
cup chopped walnuts
Powdered sugar, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, stir all ingredients until stiff dough forms.
  • 2 Drop dough by teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
  • 3 Bake 10 to 11 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Expert Tips

To use whole dates, snip dates into small pieces with scissors dipped into a glass of water.

To soften butter, microwave unwrapped butter in glass bowl or measuring cup uncovered on High 10 to 20 seconds.
