Texas Christmas Cookies

If you like a lightly spiced batter clinging to chunks of walnuts, dates and raisins, this cookie is for you! A friend brought this recipe to a cookie exchange, and it became an immediate family favorite. I've baked them every year since. It makes a big batch - 13 dozen - but I haven't tried to halve the recipe as they are too popular! You can decrease the amount a sugar a bit if using pre-chopped dates.
