Date Bar Cookies with Pecans

User Rating 4 Star Rating (4 Reviews)


These bars are brownie-like bars with chopped dates and pecans. Use walnuts in these bars if you prefer. 


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs, well beaten
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced pitted dates
  • 1 cup chopped pecans


Beat eggs and sugar thoroughly. Sift dry ingredients together; add to egg mixture. Stir in dates and pecans. Pour batter into a greased 9 x 13-inch baking dish lined with greased waxed paper. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 25 to 30 minutes. Cut into squares and roll in sifted powdered sugar while warm if desired.

excellent cake, Member atmano

I have made this several times and every one in the family and my friends love it. It is always a hit. I do not put sugar because the dates are sweet already and instead of butter I use vegetable oil. I will make it again and again
