Bisquick Date Bars
I love dates, so this is a favorite cookie at Holiday time. They are very pretty served on a red plate lined with gold paper doilies.

1Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a square 8 x 8 x 2-inch baking pan.
2Mix butter, sugar, and egg well. Stir in remaining ingredients by hand. Spread dough in prepared pan. The dough will be very thick. I oiled my fingers and pressed it evenly into the baking pan.
3Bake for 25 minutes. Cool and cut into bars, 2 x 1 1/2 inches. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
4NOTE: to make cutting the dates easier, coat a sharp knife with flour or powdered sugar frequently during cutting.
