Granny’s Date Cookies

1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 Tbsp cream
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cloves
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup finely chopped dates
4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
walnuts halves for topping

Cream butter and sugar, next add rest of the ingredients and mix well. Chill for at least 2 hours or over night. Break bits of dough and flatten down with glass, 3 inches apart on greased baking sheet. Flatten with knife, that has been dipped in cold water. Put ½ walnut half on top of cookie and bake for 10 minutes in 350 degrees (moderate heat).

Variation: Add chopped nuts to cookies in place of topping cookie with walnut half. Add 1 cup oats and omit 1 cup flour.
