  • Directions for date squares:
  • Cream margarine and sugar together until light and fluffy. Combine flour, salt and baking soda; add to creamed mixture. Stir in oats, blending well.
  • Date filling:
  • Combine dates, sugar, and water in a medium saucepan; cook over low heat for 5 to 10 minutes, or until smooth and thick. Cool slightly before spreading on oat crust. Makes 3 cups of date filling for date squares.
  • Pat half of the date square mixture into a lightly buttered 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Spread with date filling and then top with remaining crust mixture. Pat lightly to smooth top crust.
  • Bake at 400°F for 30 minutes. Cut into bars while still warm; remove from pan. Makes 32 date squares or bars.
