Ingredients

¼ cup butter
½ cup vegetable shortening
*
1 cup brown sugar
*
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
2 cups oatmeal
¼ teaspoon baking soda
*
½ cup dates
chopped
½ cup brown sugar
*
½ tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup water
hot

Directions

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 ¼ inch thickness and spread out on bottom of a greased pan.

Cover with following date mixture: ½ cup of dates chopped, ½ cup brown sugar, one tablespoon cornstarch, 1 cup of hot water.

Cook until thick stirring constantly.

Spread over oatmeal mixture and roll second oatmeal portion and put on top.

Bake about 1 hour in 350℉ (180℃) F oven.
