INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 3/4 cup white sugar

- 1 cup dates, pitted and chopped
- 1/2 cup chopped, unsalted dry-roasted peanuts
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, salt and baking soda, stir into the creamed mixture.
