Date Fingers (aka Date Bars)

5 oz butter
4 oz SR flour
2 oz plain flour
3 oz light soft brown sugar
6 oz stoned dates

NB don't forget to add both sorts of flour!

  1. Put the butter in the mixing bowl. Soften it in the microwave for 20 seconds.
  2. Add the two sorts of flour and mix it well.
  3. Add the sugar and the dates. I think the dates need to be cut in half.
  4. Combine well together.
  5. Grease an 8 inch square tin.
  6. Put the mixture in the tin and press it down lightly.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes at 350ºF, 180ºC, Gas 4, Fan oven 160º.
  8. Cool slightly, cut into fingers, dust with icing sugar.
