    Lemons and dates together are tangy and sweet and very addictive! You can cut the bars into any shape you like, I prefer thin sticks.

    For our 2nd wedding anniversary, my husband gave me a card that said "we can still have dates" along with a package of dates! I thought, what in the world will I do with these? So tonight, I made this recipe and it turned out great! While I was mixing the ingredients, it seemed too thick, but it actually came out perfect. The best part is the delicious icing. Next time I'll make a double batch. Now I can't wait to offer my husband a date in a bar!  -  05 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    i liked this recipe a lot. the richness of the fruit complements the tart acidity of the lemon. i substituted raisins for dates (plumped them up first by cooking them with enough water to cover on the stove - when the water was all absorbed, i ground them up in the food processor) and they taste great! to make the icing more tart, i left out the milk and added more lemon juice.  -  22 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These are wonderful and easy to make. They are very sweet and addictive. I used a 9X9 pan and cut them into 36 little square pieces. Thank you for the recipe.  -  13 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
