Directions

  1. In a small bowl, pour boiling water over dates, and set aside to cool. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 10x10 inch baking pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the shortening and white sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Add the dates, including any water; mix well. Sift together the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and baking soda; stir into the date mixture. Then stir in the nuts.
  3. Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared 10x10 inch pan, and bake for 45 minutes in the preheated oven. When cool, cut into bars, and roll each bar in confectioners' sugar.

Finally a date bar that is moist and holds together. I shared these bars with my neighbor and she loved them as much as my husband did! I did increase the cinnamon to 1/4 teaspoon. I didn't use the confectioners' sugar, once we tried them without we decided they were perfect the way they were. Great recipe!

Delicious! I made a few changes just for personal preference, I reduced the dates to 1 1/4 cups, added 1/4 cup of golden raisins, and increased the walnuts to one full cup. I also used 2/3 cup of brown sugar and 1/3 cup of white sugar and added 1 tsp of vanilla. Also increased the cinnamon to 1/4 tsp and left off the powdered sugar as others suggested. Although I'm sure this would be awesome as it's originally written. I will be adding this to my recipe books.
