Date-Filled Cookies

The best cookies ever tasted - that was the verdict after the first snack. And believe me, I saw some cookies, at least at our holiday home there were about 5-6 types, that's the tradition in the area.

I worked a bit on the exterior, because such simple powders are not very good-looking - but after the experiences at home with cookies immediately came up ideas, here I just put the picture with them simple (see the appetizing section), if you powder them very little with cocoa powder (see picture below) will be even more beautiful.
