grandma stromberg's date bars
another sweet Swedish treat!

My grandmother spent her time making and bottling root beer, making angel food cakes and other sweet delights.  This is one of my favorite recipes she made.  It’s unusual to me that we enjoyed this in the 50’s and 60’s, because dates are the main ingredient.  Although, it has sugar, just remember the dates are a wonderful dietary fiber food, very rich in potassium, fat and cholesterol free!
