This is my Mom's recipe. When she makes them they are gone almost before she's done rolling them in the powdered sugar. Even if you don't like dates, you should try them, they are sooo good you might be converted to liking dates after all!

How to Make Date Bars


  1. Add the chopped dates and pecans to the beaten eggs, add the sugar, salt, baking powder. mix. then add the flour and mix well.
  2. Put into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 275* for 1 hour. And yeah I mean 275, LOL, I give this recipe to people and they think that's a typo, it's not! :o) So, when they are done you cut them when they are warm into small squares and roll them into powdered sugar. They are very rich so you want them small. But sooo yummy...
