recipe

Snip's Date Fingers I'm sure there are loads of recipes for date fingers out there but this is my version. I like quick, tasty and easy and this recipe ticks all the boxes! 250gr (8.8 ounces) of butter 1 cup of brown sugar 500 gr (17.6 ounces) of chopped dried dates 1 egg well beaten 200 gr (7 ounces) of glace cherries, I use red and green. 200 gr (7 ounces) of Marie biscuits broken into small pieces. Grated coconut to sprinkle on top Butter a 10 x 8 inch cake pan or glass dish. Heat butter and sugar in a sauce pan over a low flame till sugar melts. Add the dates and beaten egg and mix well and quickly. Add cherries and biscuit pieces. Mix well and remove off stove. Spoon mixture into greased pan and flatten evenly with a spatula or the back of a spoon. Top with grated coconut and allow to cool. Cut into squares or fingers. Enjoy :smile: These are marie biscuits but other cookies like shortbread or plain sweet cookies can be used.
