    Cookie Jarvis's Note:

    My sister got a pan of these along with her birthday cake every year. Lucky her! (I didn't have it so bad. My mom always got me a bag of chocolate covered raisins on mine.) But this recipe is so easy, you really should make it more than once a year!

      These date bars are FABULOUS! I made 1/2 recipe and they turned out wonderfully. I substituted butter for the shortening and made in a pie pan. Wonderfully sweet flavor without being heavy. Great recipe Cookie Jarvis! Made for Spring PAC 2010!
