Is that the one with the shortbready/oatmeal bottom, the date filling then the stuff on top? I have a recipe here somewhere if thats what you're looking for.

OK, this is a bit sketchy. Hopefully someone will fill in the blanks.

1 1/2 cups oats
3/4 cup margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 tsp baking soda

date filling

Mix dry ingredients together until crumbly. (I just use my hands) Pack about 2/3 in the bottom of a 9x9 pan and pat down. Spread date filling on top then sprinkle final 1/3 of dry mixture on top. Press gently. Bake at 350 for 12 - 15 minutes or until golden.

OK so the date filling piece is the part I can't help you with. Its been about a million years since I made this recipe with date filling. I usually make it with the leftover cranberry sauce after a turkey dinner. Anyone out there got help for Tanis?

Date filling

1/2 lb of dates chopped up
1/2 cup sugar
2/3 cup water

Put on the stove and simmer til dates are smooshy. DON'T let them boil dry! You can add more or less dates as you wish to make as much filling as you like.

9x9 pan Dove, but its easily doubled or trebled if you need to. You could make one pan with date filling and another with cranberry filling to be different.
