Cream the butter or margarine, sugars and flavoring together. Add the eggs and continue beating well. Sift the dry ingredients together and add all at once. Chill while you prepare the date filling.
Stir the dates, sugar and water together in a saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until very thick. Add nutmeats; cool thoroughly. Remove cookie dough from the refrigerator. Roll out to 1/2 inch thickness. Spread with the date filling. Roll up in jelly roll fashion. Store in refrigerator until quite firm. Slice in thin slices on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for 10 to 15 minutes.
