Grandmother's date bars

Yield: 16 Servings

Measure Ingredient
½ pounds Dates; cut into 1/2" thick cubes
¾ cup Water
1 tablespoon Honey
1 cup Toasted walnut pieces
¾ cup Brown sugar
1 cup Unsalted butter
2½ cup Rolled oats
2 cups Flour
1 teaspoon Baking soda
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
2 tablespoons Milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a 1-quart saucepan, combine dates, the water, and honey. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for 7 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes. Stir in walnuts. Reserve. In a large mixing bowl, crumble together brown sugar, butter, rolled oats, flour, and baking soda. In a small bowl, mix vanilla and milk, then stir into dry ingredients to form a crumbly mixture. Pat two thirds of the crumbly mixture onto the bottom of an 8-inch-square baking pan. Spread date mixture onto crumbs.

Sprinkle remaining crumbly mixture on top. Bake until lightly browned (35 to 40 minutes).

NOTES : Yield: 16 squares.
