    Thanks for sharing Cheryl. We really enjoyed these date squares. They turned out very yummy. I used 1 cup of orange juice instead of water. I also only cooked these at 400 for 30 minutes.

    I love date squares but found on this one that the cooking temperature and length of cooking time to be much too hot and too long. My squares were dryed out and too brown. I think 350f for 40 minutes would be better. My oven was checked about 3 months ago and is right on.

    Personally I'm not a date fan but my sister is, she asked for date squares. This recipe was the closest one I could find to my grandmothers. The only thing my sister said was wrong with the recipe was that it needed more dates. Other than that she said the flavour was great.
