So, if you haven’t figured it out yet, I love old fashioned recipes…you know, the ones that you would find in an old ratty cookbook that your mom bought from a church bazaar. I think date squares kinda fall under that category. Sure, now you can find them in every coffee shop but nobody really knows how easy they are to make…I mean totally easy. And, if you have never tried a date square, you really need to just bite the bullet and try one. Many people say, “but I don’t like raisins so…”. But a date is so NOT like a raisin. I’m not a raisin fan and I love dates….they are not gritty and, when baked, they melt into sugary goodness! So, give these a try (I’m testing some pumpkin ice cream to go along with these babies!). They are really crazy good and super easy…and dates grow on trees which make them fruit which means they’re healthy which means they negate all of the sugar and butter in this recipe which means you can have lots. Works for me…I’m on my 3rd piece!
