Bite into family history and let the aroma of these freshly baked Date Nut Bars, conjure up your childhood memories.
At least that is the affect these Date Nut Bars have on my friend Lisa Jaworski. She shares with us her ancedote about these intrguing bars. Lisa says, “This family favorite Date Nut Bars recipe comes from my Great Grandmother Marie, who came here from Caserta, Italy in 1898 through Ellis Island. Don’t know where she got the recipe, but she was a wonderful chef trained by the nuns. She had 9 children to feed and she did it all from scratch. We used to sneak these treats off the tray when we were kids. Well, at least we thought we were sneaking them, but my Mother probably knew all along.”
