1 cup shortening
2 cups brown sugar (don't pack it)
2 beaten eggs
4 T sour milk
1 tsp soda 1 tsp salt 3 1/2 cups flour 1 cup chopped dates 1 tsp vanilla Stir everything well to combine and then drop generously from a spoon onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes in a 375 degree oven. Of course this depends on your stove. If they are gooey when you remove them, you'll know that they need a a few minutes more. :) Before you leave, why not sign up to follow me. Something new every day! :) It's in the right hand side!
