My Family's Date Squares

date squares (1 of 1)

These? These are pure Christmas. No matter what else is going on, no matter if we're spending Christmas in Denver or in the mountains (usually it's the mountains. Spoiled, I know), these date squares must be involved. Somewhere along the way my sister decided, in her infinite infant wisdom, that she didn't like date squares. Hey, that's cool. More for me. I wish I had never convinced her to try them again as an adult. But I didn't want her to miss out on one of the season's greatest pleasures.

It's always my mom who makes these squares, just as the recipe is written on her old recipe card, the same every year. But last year, a miracle of innovation occurred. She grabbed the wrong measuring spoon when adding the salt and ended up doubling the amount. And it. Was. Delicious. I know the salt/sweet combo is all the rage lately, and there is a darn good reason why. that extra salt took these unassuming little bars totally over the top, and I don't think we'll ever be going back. The extra salt has been added to the recipe below. No matter where in the world I am for Christmas, these bars always mean home. My mom has a great Joy of Cooking way of writing recipes out in paragraph form. For nostalgia's sake, I've maintained her style here.

My Family's Date Squares
Family Recipe

Cream together:

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup light brown sugar

Mix in by hand:

1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 3/4 cups quick cooking oatmeal
3/4 teaspoon salt

Pat 1/2 of this mixture into a greased 9x13 inch pan.

In a pot, boil until thickened and then cool:

1 pound dates (pitted and cut in half)
1 cup light brown sugar
1 1/2 cups water

Spread that mixture over the first in the pan, then pat in the remaining oatmeal crumbs until smooth. Bake in a 350F oven for 30 minutes. Allow to cool before cutting and serving.


These squares look stunning...would love to try them!!

My control systems solution was great but unfortunately, it was delivered a day after the deadline. I took Matlab assignment help from here because I had read some really good reviews about MatlabAssignmentExperts and especially where the customers were happy about their assignments being delivered on time and sometimes even a few days before the deadline. I had a totally different experience and the only reason I was able to beat my deadline was that I had given the Matlab assignment helperwho handled my task the wrong deadline. Still, the platform isn’t so bad because I got a decent grade from the solution they prepared but they should address the late delivery issue asap.

I got the best Programming Assignment Help services from their experts, who showed the highest level of expertise and professionalism. Handling my project faster than expected was the best thing they could do to it, especially given that I also wanted some revision time with the paper and solutions. I'm glad I was able to understand a few more C concepts from the properly-arranged solutions. Cheers to the C Homework Help tutor!

I often use statistics Homework HelpS because they never fail. However, isn't consistent with their prices. I gave up trying to find a model that could help me predict their prices. I think there should be a hint about their pricing criteria to help students have adequate preparation before submitting their assignments for help. Meanwhile, apart from the unpredictable price, I love everything else about the platform's Statistics Assignment Help.

I want to thank you for the extra effort put to ensure that I scored the best grade in my Matlab Assignment Help. I've established trust now, and I'll keep coming back to get more projects to be completed by their senior Matlab Homework Help experts. I'll share their good gospel with my friends, too. Thanks for the top mark.

Hi. Thanks a bunch for giving me grades that I never expected from I only used the organization's Economics Assignment Help out of desperation, but it helped me discover that there is likely no better online service like it. I highly recommend the platform and this Economics Homework Help provider (the poster). He's such a fast and professional economist.

I can't praise Programming Homework
services enough, except for the previous order. It wasn't completed and sent in time. There were also a lot of mistakes and a few plagiarism issues, too, but I'm glad they came in and resolved the issue quite fast. Please make an effort to match experts with the right orders. The previous Python Homework Help must have been an amateur, though I appreciate his food knowledge. He only needs some experience to be perfect.

My lecturer gave us an assignment almost at the end of the semester when we were supposed to be preparing for our examinations. I had to choose between studying for the exams and completing the assignment and going to the exams unprepared. So I paid for Statistics Homework Help on Then, I used the same Statistics Assignment Help expert's services for revising. After my results, I can confirm that working with the expert was a win-win. His assignment results were perfect, and I also scored most of the things he taught me right in the exams.

These printers are best to use in industries due to precise print, speed, and economical features. Instead of ink, these models use toner powder to print. Though, LaserJet printers are costly than inkjet printers for home users but affordable and best for businesses, industries, and large organizations.,

The Programming Homework Help service was worth more than every penny I paid for it. Thanks a bunch for giving me their time and dedication. I loved every bit of the experience I had with one of the Java Homework Help experts, who turned out to be very interactive and professional in the way she handled me and my assignment. The lady was experienced and polite. Thanks, too, for the affordable prices and easy payment process. I'll come again for more.

This Statistics Assignment Help provider has been completing my assignments and helping me understand them at the same time. That is, as soon as he submits the assignment's solutions, he commits himself to explain each of them to me on a video call. I always use this service to achieve perfect presentations and understand more concepts for future use in the examinations. Besides, the Statistics Homework Help specialist is a good advisor. He's generous with sharing his experience with students.

Getting the perfectMatlab homework help solver has always been a challenge because very few Matlab assignments help experts understand all the concepts of Matlab. However, for the time they have been tackling my communications system assignment, they have given me new hope because they may not have one person working on all Matlab topics but they have different tutors in one pool. That is the main reason why I am so comfortable working with them.

Java isn't my cup of tea, but I'm confident that the Programming Assignment Help services are going to make a difference. I'm waiting for their solutions for the firstC++ Homework Help order that I've just sent. I believe that they're going to help me pass and understand some of the major concepts of the programming language.

Statistics became harder than I thought before I joined the university. To make it worse, my lecturer wasn't the type of person that explains concepts deeply. So it was everyone for himself. Then I started the hunt for where I could getStatistics Homework Help online and bumped into I considered myself lucky to meet this trustworthy expert at my first attempt. He's a one-of-a-kindR Homework Help specialist.

Looking for a master’s levelMatlab homework help solver. I am starting my image processing project but I don’t have time for it. I want aMatlab assignment help expert who will work on it from start to finish. Our professors like it worked step by step so that they can check and return comments for corrections. The tutor I want will be receiving the comments, correcting them, and then returning them to the professor. Once they are corrected and given a go-ahead to continue the tutor will then go ahead to the next chapter until the project is completed. Let me know whether they have someone who can do that.

I am now looking for a genuineEconomics homework help expert who is ready to partner with me for the next 2 years. I would appreciate it if you send me their samples to see the quality of your work
