Gramma's Date Squares
I baked these up with some changes. I added pecans and took the tip from Lorrie about baking the bottom crust in the oven for 15 minutes. (I actually baked mine about 17 minutes.) I pulsed my flour, oats, pecans and other dry ingredients in a food processor with chilled butter. ( I didn't read Lorrie's tip of softening butter until this step was complete but the bottom turned out perfectly solid). I wish I would have skipped adding the brown sugar to the dates! They don't need sugar and I do think it diminishes the dates' flavor profile. Next time I will increase the dates to one pound. I added vanilla to my dates after cooking. I did microwave my remaining oat mixture a little bit to soften the butter before adding to the pan. All in all, we liked the finished product.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread
This is excellent cornbread! I give it 4 stars because the instructions could be better. Melt the butter in microwaveable mixing bowl and go from there. Or melt butter and combine it with sugar in a mixing bowl. A mixing bowl is easier to clean up as well. Great cornbread! The instructions do not specify preparing a baking

Amaretto Cake
This is the first time in maybe 25 years I've baked a cake using a box mix. I won't do it again. Although the almond flavor is there the texture and taste come from the box.
