  4. Then stir occasionally for about 15 more minutes. Stir in butter & salt.
  5. Remove from heat and let cool to lukewarm.
  6. Stir in almond extract.
  7. Chill (this can be prepared a few days in advance).

  14. Drop dough by teaspoon, leaving room for spreading. Put about 1/2 teaspoon of topping mixture on dough (I pressed it in. You could roll it into a ball first). Bake for about 10-12 minutes.
  15. Cool and enjoy!!


    This recipe came about when I tried to make fudge using date sugar. Don't try it, it doesn't work!!! So, I had this goo left after admitting defeat and decided to try using it in cookies. It came out much better than I thought it would. And...the date sugar works well with the chocolate. Best of all, it satisfies that 'need' for a treat and is compliant (unless some neutrals have changed and I don't know it). With figs added and the olive and flaxseed oils it at least has some highly beneficals. We will just ignore the sugars for the sake of a cookie treat.
