My Dad's Favorite Oatmeal Walnut Date Cookies

My Dad loves these oatmeal date cookies.  Every-time I visit home, he asks me to bake a batch before I leave.  I can't argue because they are delicious.  The addition of dates makes the cookies extra moist, chewy, and amazing!

2 sticks butter
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs 
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups uncooked quick oatmeal
1 cup chopped dates
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Mix ingredients in order.   Bake at 350 degrees  for about 8 to 10 minutes. 

....and enjoy...especially dunked in hot coffee!
