Homemade Date Squares are so melt in your mouth delicious! Am I right? All of that buttery date filling sandwiched between delicious brown sugar, flour and more butter!
This easy Date Square Recipe is even better than the ones you see in your favorite coffee store. Just sayin.
Biting into a freshly baked Date Square can be a bit tricky. That delicious crumbly topping full of buttery brown sugar goodness will crumble all over you, if you aren’t careful. But that really does take second place to the creamy date filling that swirls around in your mouth with the yummy cookie base and topping. Date Squares are definitely a triple layer of awesome goodness! Also known as Newfoundland Date Crumbles there a number of different recipes out there.
A well-known Canadian treat - wiki says Date squares are also known as Matrimonial Cake! While there are lots of recipes out there - I like the one from Robin Hood - Ooey Gooey Date Squares, the very best date squares I’ve ever eaten come from this recipe that was created by my Grandma Snider.
I’ve featured some of her recipes before, she was an amazing cook and baker! This easy date square recipe will quickly become a family favorite.
