Date Squares

This was on a scrap of paper carefully folded and placed in a plastic sleeve. It doesn’t look half bad.

8 oz dates, cut into small pieces
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup boiling water

Crumb mixture:
3/4 cup shortening
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp soda
1.5 cup sifted flour
1.5 cup oatmeal.

To do:
Preheat oven to 350F.
Cook filling ingredients in a saucepan until they’re thick. Mix crumb mixture and put half in the bottom of a 9 inch pan. Spread the date mixture on top of the crumb mixture. Top with remaining crumb mixture. Bake for an unlisted time. [I’d start with 12-15 minutes and increase until it looks done.] Cool and cut into squares.
