There's nothing extraordinary about this one - it's just very nice!! An easy shortcrust pastry encases a sticky date filling. You could also add chopped walnuts to the filling, if desired.

No Oats ! Great simple recipe. I replaced water with orange juice for added zing, and chucked in a bit of cinnamon & cloves-14 Aug 2016(Review from this site AU | NZ)

You could double the amount of pastry for this amount of filling. Or else use left over filling for delicious spread for toast etc.-19 Feb 2017(Review from this site AU | NZ)
