4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Soda

FILLING:
1 lb. Dates Chopped

Cook this until dates are cooked. This thickens so may need to use more water.

Divide the dough into two balls and roll out and spread the filling and then roll up. Chill for 24 hours and you can also freeze and slice and bake when you need them.

375 F for about 10 to 15 minutes til light brown.
