Just made this and baked in two 8 x 4 aluminum pans for 35-40 minutes and they are excellent. Just like my Mother used to make. Am going to make a bunch of these for Christmas/Hostess gifts. Thanks for the great recipe.

Delicious! Moist, rich, flavorful. The modification I made was that I did not add sugar. I used only the one cup dates. It was sweet enough.
