The Ultimate Spritz -- (see recipe)
1 (8 ounce) package pitted dates (about 1 1/4 cups)
1 cup walnut pieces (about 4 ounces)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
2 tablespoons orange juice
Heat oven to 375º. Prepare dough for The Ultimate Spritz, using vanilla.
Place remaining ingredients in food processor. Cover and process about 20 seconds, using quick on-and-off motions, until mixture is ground and resembles thick paste.
Place dough in cookie press with ribbon tip. Form 10-inch ribbons about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Spoon date mixture down center of each ribbon to form 1/2-inch-wide strip. Top with another ribbon of dough.
Gently press edges with fork to seal.
Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until light brown. Immediately cut ribbons into 2-inch lengths. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
