"Made in a shallow cookie pan and cut into squares then rolled and tossed in confectioner's sugar. Chewy and wonderful!"

Really chewy! My family doesn't like things too sweet, so I cut down the sugar to 1 1/3 cup, used chopped dates instead of pureed dates and 1 cup chopped pecans. I used a 9X13 pan for 25-30min and they turned out excellent! I didn't roll them in sugar afterwards -- they were great just plain. I think it would be too sweet if the full amount of sugar was used.
This recipe is the same as my grandmothers, except I don't puree the dates, I use chopped. I also use regular sugar to very lightly coat (I just cut them, I didn't roll into a ball) some of the chinese chews so we have them both with sugar and some without.
I also tried using a glass pan and had to cook them longer, I will go back to using a regular 9 x 13 pan.
No need to roll these treats...I cut these into mini-squares and that's it! Maybe they were too difficult to roll because I used 1 cup of sugar, and 1 cup of chopped pecans. The end result has a consistency like a brownie. Definitely a keeper in my regular recipes!
