Date Bars

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by mert16

This is my Grama's recipe. It's a delicious and easy bar cookie. I love them because I remember always having them at Christmastime when I was a little kid in the early 60's right up until just a few years ago, when my Grama's age and health precluded her from making them any longer.
