    coconutty's Note:

    I looked at a lot of recipes for date bars on this site and didn't find one exactly like mine. This is my adaptation of my grandma's recipe - hers called for shortening but I use butter. I also eliminated the sugar in the date filling. Sometimes I add a little lemon rind to the date filling, although that is not written into the recipe. Prep time is an estimate.
