DATE BARS



This dish is really for the kids. As festive season are knocking at our door step and we are busy trying out something new and innovative to bring smile on the faces of our little angels , here is something new which I have come across and want to share with you.
Hope you will like it.

INGREDIENTS:
Eggs                               3 well-beaten
Castor sugar 1cup
Refined flour 1cup
Salt ¼ tsp salt
Baking powder 1tsp
Dates(pitted and sliced) 1 ½ cup
Essence of vanilla 1tsp
Walnuts(broken) 1cup


PROCEDURE:
Beat egg with sugar until very thick . Mix in the flour, salt ,baking powder and the egg mixture. Add dates, essence and walnuts. Bake in a waxed paper-lined pan in a moderate oven for half an hour or till a knife inserted in the center comes out clean .While still warm cut into bars and roll in icing sugar(this is not very necessary but you can add it to make it more yummy. Your kids will surely like it and if you want to accompany them then go ahead but remember enjoy sweets as an occasional treat, in little quantity and half an hour of more exercise is a must.
BE HAPPY.
