dates, pitted and chopped
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.
this is a delicious recipe. the only thing i added is a teaspoon of vanilla. once cooled in the fridge overnight, it was firmer and chewier to the bite. i love it!
Really tasty, definitely improve with age. Bake them and hide them for a couple of days. I used Brazil nutes instead of walnuts but only because that was all I had. Still turned out yummy!
I made this recipe exactly as written. I thought it had the perfect amount of spices making it full flavored and very satisfying for my sweet tooth! Delicious.
Very moist and easy to cut. I didn't have quite enough dates so I added raisins. Cooked right on time.
