My Grandma Made Date everything and the family members have always said how good Grandmas date bars are, I found her recipe in her recipes and here is is for all to share I hope you all enjoy.

I haven't made these myself as I'm not into date bars and some of the directions seems brief, but I'm sure if your into making date bars you can improvise with these directions.
