 Ingredients List

  • 1/4 c Butter
  • 1/2 c Shortening
  • 1 c Brown Sugar
  • 1 1/2 c Flour
  • 2 c Oatmeal
  • 1/4 ts Baking soda


Cream the butter and shortening; gradually add the brown sugar, then the
flour, oatmeal and soda. This will give you a very stiff dough, which you
will have to knead with the hands to work smooth. Do not be tempted to add
liquid.If it will not hold to-gether its because the shortening and butter
were not sufficiently well creamed. Divide into two portions and roll half
to 1/4 in. thickness and spread out on bottom of a greased pan. Cover with
following date mixture: 1/2 cup of dates chopped, 1/2 cup brown sugar, one
tblsp. cornstarch, 1 cup of hot water. Cook till thick stirring constantly.
Spread over oatmeal mixture and roll second oatmeal portion and put on top.
Bake about 1 hour in 350 oven.
