    I use chopped dates in place of raisins in any recipe - I especially like oatmeal cookies with chopped dates & pecans - YUMM!

    I used to make a cracker-cookie with chopped dates - really yummy!
    Cook to mush: 1 can sweetened condensed milk, 1 lb of chopped dates - stir in chopped walnuts (optional) and spread on oval (Townhouse) crackers. Frost with a little vanilla canned frosting. Topping will firm up as it cools - Makes a BUNCH and I remember freezing them too.

    How about an Apple Date salad? So easy to fix!

    1.Core and cut apples into bite size pieces, leaving the skins on. (I soak mine in Sprite or 7-Up for a few minutes to keep them from turning brown, then drain when ready to continue)
    2.Add in the date pieces.
    3. Mix in mini-marshmallows
    4. Stir in Cool Whip into ingredients until blended.

    Voila...instant salad that goes great with any turkey, pork or chicken dinner. I sometimes mix in Spanish peanuts if you want to add a little crunch with a salty flavor!

    I make cranberry date bars that are good but you need fresh cranberries.
