My father's family had very lean years in those early days. The only baked treat they had at Christmas was Ammonium Cookies. In later years the sweet treats included Pfeffernuesse Cookies and Date Treats.Pit whole dates. Stuff with 1/2 walnut meats and roll in sugar or powdered sugar. Store in airtight container.
