These are great at Christmas as gifts.

1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sour milk
1/2 teaspoon baking soda (mix with milk to make it sour)
3/4 cup walnuts, chopped
1 cup dates, cut in small pieces
Cream brown sugar and margarine; add egg. Mix flour with slat; add to mixture. Mix sour milk and baking soda togetehr until dissolved. Add to mixture; mix in nuts and dates. Divide mixture into two rolls. Wrap in wax paper and refrigerate at least 2 hours. Slice and bake on greased cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. I like to use parchment paper on my cookie sheets.
