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.
1/4 cbutter or shortening, room temperature
3/4 clight brown sugar
1 2/3 cbiscuit baking mix
1 ccut-up dates
1/2 cchopped walnuts or pecans
How to Make Bisquick Date Bars
- Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a square 8 x 8 x 2-inch baking pan.
- Mix 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.
- Bake for 25 minutes. Cool and cut into bars, 2 x 1 1/2 inches. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
- NOTE: to make cutting the dates easier, coat a sharp knife with flour or powdered sugar frequently during cutting.
