butter, melted and cooled
dates, pitted and chopped
i liked this recipe a lot. the richness of the fruit complements the tart acidity of the lemon. i substituted raisins for dates (plumped them up first by cooking them with enough water to cover on the stove - when the water was all absorbed, i ground them up in the food processor) and they taste great! to make the icing more tart, i left out the milk and added more lemon juice.
These were overly sweet, maybe because my chopped dates had sugar on them. I didn't notice that until after I baked them and then looked at the dates again and the second ingredient was sugar. Too sweet!!
These are wonderful and easy to make. They are very sweet and addictive. I used a 9X9 pan and cut them into 36 little square pieces. Thank you for the recipe.
These were gone in a flash! I don't love dates, so I wasn't sure I'd like these, but they were so good that we couldn't stop eating them!
For our 2nd wedding anniversary, my husband gave me a card that said "we can still have dates" along with a package of dates! I thought, what in the world will I do with these? So tonight, I made this recipe and it turned out great! While I was mixing the ingredients, it seemed too thick, but it actually came out perfect. The best part is the delicious icing. Next time I'll make a double batch. Now I can't wait to offer my husband a date in a bar!
Just drizzle the glaze over the bars because it's too sweet.
Yummy! These are chewy and the lemon really makes it. I used whole wheat pastry flour instead, with no problems. My husband LOVES these served with lemon gelato! My 4 year old would only lick the icing though.
I liked the idea of this recipe better than the finished product. I also agree with Ralwattar's review that there isn't enough batter to fill the pan adequately. Maybe that would help. I ordinarily love dates, so I will try to make this one work. Did like the tartness of the lemon.
