Old Fashioned Date Nut Bars

A little different from other recipes I've seen here, because the nuts are in the crust and there's the addition of lemon. They sound great. Wish I knew where the recipe came from! Read all the way through--notes at the end are from the original author.

ingredients

directions

  • Combine filling ingredients in a saucepan, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer a few minutes till thickened. Set aside and let cool.
  • For the base, sift together dry ingredients.
  • Cream sugar and butter. Add eggs, and dry ingredients and walnuts. Add lemon juice and zest to moisten.
  • Spread on a cookie sheet and up the sides.
  • Spread cooled filling over crust.
  • Combine filling ingredients with a fork until crumbly. Sprinkle on top and bake at 375 F for 35-40 minute.
  • Original recipe calls for the bars to be baked on a cookie sheet pan. We like them thicker, so I put them in a 9 X 13 cake pan.
  • Cool and cut unto bars.
  • To serve sprinkle liberally with 10X sugar.
