These date biscuits were one of the very first things I made when I got into baking. At the time I did not know where all the baking utensils in the kitchen were, and could not find the cookie cutter. I therefore used a substitute in the form of a washing powder tablespoon, which meant I ended up with lots of delicious bite-sized biscuits crammed full of dates. You can of course use a regular sized cookie cutter if you like, and make half the amount, but I quite like these tiny morsels the way they are. Since I used soya ingredients, and no eggs, these are a yummy treat for vegans. Based on the brands I used, each biscuit is about 64 calories.
