Date Bars from my Childhood

Date Bars from my Childhood created by Jonathan Melendez

I call them that because as far back as I can remember, my Grandmother made these on special occasions, or just because. And my mother always made them, too. They are just so good and really "datey" , just the way I like them.

    Wow! These are the best date bars I've ever made! The crust alone is delicious, and overall so simple to make. I can't wait to bake up another batch.
