Date Nut Bars

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Seasoned Cook

FAMILY FAVORITE! Dates are our favorite fruit to put in bars and combined with nuts give a "just right" flavor. I have been making these bars for over 30 years and we have them all year. The powdered sugar topping is a must for enhanced flavor. Great with coffee!

GREAT TASTING DATE BARS! I used the more moist & tasty Medjool dates & also toasted the pecans before including them! And, I didn't dust them with the powdered sugar! Thanks for posting a keeper of a recipe! [Made & reviewed as a recipenap in the Aus.NZ Recipe Swap #22]
