I don't need to try these to know they are good. I make these all the time but I add orange juice not water and no sugar.
Very easy, very delicious!!
Another variation: Whole wheat flour instead of white, and for the date filling I used only 2/3 cup liquid and 2T sugar, along with 1/2 cup of candied ginger. Processed in food processor in 2 batches (divide sugar, water & ginger, too). Didn't need to cook it before spreading it over crust. Great stuff! Thanks for the recipe
Very easy recipe, tasted great. Subbed water for OJ as suggested. Had a couple people request the recipe!
it's great! i followed some of the other reviewers who sub the water with orange juice, and the result was YUMMMMMMYYYYYYY!!!
My mom has been making date bars for many years and she uses this same Betty Crocker recipe. They are one of my all time favorite desserts. I love the slightly salty crumbly topping with the sweeter date filling. Yummy!!
I've been making this for many years. My recipe came from an old cookbook from the '60's. I use 1 cup orange juice and the rest water. I only use a 9"x9" pan for mine. The orange juice really gives it a nice flavour. Thanks for posting this now I won't have to dig up my old cookbook when I want to make them.
