Date Squares

Here's a recipe from our family recipe box. It came from my husband's grandmother. The squares have a cakey bottom and the dates on the top soften up during baking to make a very nice treat! If you find the cake isn't cooked after about 1/2 hour, you can cover the pan with tinfoil to stop the top from burning and bake for another 5-10 minutes.
