These are really very good - I made one batch and we ate it over two days and they were great. I've made a second batch in two halves - one replacing the dates with figs and one with cranberries and they look good. The only negative is that they have so much sugar in that they aren't really 'healthy', so I might swap the sugar for honey in the filling next time, and the dough is quite sweet so I might use less sugar there. We love this recipe though and have them for an on the go breakfast.
These are just like my mother used to make back in the 60's. They are fantastic. I loved eating this bar, and now that she is gone, I make this often. You do not want the date mixture to get too thick or the bars will be dry.
