1 cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup orange marmalade

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or lightly grease. Sift together flour, potato flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.

Soak the dates in the hot coffee for at least 30 minutes. Drain coffee but reserve 1 teaspoon of the liquid. Cream butter and sugar in a mixture bowl until light and fluffy. Add the egg, milk, reserved coffee and vanilla and mix until blended.

Add soaked dates into the flour mixture and toss just to coat lightly. Add flour into the creamed mixture and mix until smooth.
