Matrimonial Date Squares
November 25, 2016

Matrimonial Squares aka Date Squares are a Christmas tradition in my home. The orange and vanilla in this recipe really add a delicious flavour and put them over the top. I do like to bring my dates to a boil while constantly stirring, then turn them down to low to get a nice thick paste. I also use a potato masher to press the oatmeal crumb into the pan, then I also do the top to compact the date square mixture which makes it more solid and easier to cut once cooled. Mine baked in 40 minutes in a parchment lined 9x9 pan. Thanks for the great recipe, a wonderful addition to my Christmas baking this year. My recommendation for date part, 1 lb dates, 1 cup orange juice, 1/8 cup brown sugar, 1 heaping tsp orange zest and 1/4 tsp salt.
