Vegan Date filled Cookies Recipe by Ghina's Baking
Mix all dough ingredients by hand. Adjust the flour-liquid ratio if needed until you have a dough that comes together really well. It should not be sticky
Cover and let it rest for 1 hour in a warm spot.
Place all filling ingredients in a saucepan on low heat. Mix well, try to break the dates and when filling becomes thick, turn off heat.
When dough has proofed, place on a lightly floured surface and knead for few minutes. Let rest for another 10 mins.
Roll the dough into a rectangular shape (1-2 cm thick) then divide rectangle to smaller rectangles ~ 5 cm in width, each. Fill with date mixture and close the edges tightly. You'll end up with long rolls.
Cut each roll to desired number of fingers, place in a greased pan and bake for 15-20 mins at 180C or until golden brown on top.
