Recipe Spotlight

Grandma's Date Bars

These nicely textured bars are delicious. It's a good recipe for today's diet awareness, because there's no shortening used. My great-grandmother, who was born in 1868, made these bars, and the recipe has come down through the generations. Now my children are making them. -Marilyn Reid, Cherry Creek, New York
