Bisquick Date Bars

Susan Feliciano


This recipe has been in my box for almost 40 years. These delectable bar cookies can be made with any baking mix, and are especially good if you are a wheat grinder and make your own biscuit baking mix.
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.

How to Make Bisquick Date Bars


  • 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.
