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.

Ingredients

1/4 c
butter or shortening, room temperature
3/4 c
light brown sugar
1 large
egg
1 2/3 c
biscuit baking mix
1 c
cut-up dates
1/2 c
chopped walnuts or pecans

Step-By-Step

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.
