Easy Date Nut Bars – Great for Last Minute Baking

Saturday, December 25th, 2010 No comments

This recipe is being shared by my good friend, Barbara Zaugg. Her mother made these for many years while living near Mexico City.  We made these a few weeks ago, but they are great for that last minute baking because they are quick and easy.




Date Nut Bars

2 cups sugar

2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 ½ cups dates

2 cups chopped nuts

4 eggs

2 tablespoons butter, melted

1 teaspoon vanilla

Beat the eggs until frothy, add butter and vanilla. 

Mix dry ingredients.  Slowly add to the egg mixture.

Spread into a prepared 15 x 10 x 1 inch baking pan.

Bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes.

Cut into 1 inch by 3 inch bars and roll in powder sugar.
