Ingredients
  Sifted flour 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Baking powder 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 Pinch
  Coarsely cut up dates 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Coarsely Chopped)
  Coarsely chopped walnuts 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Eggs 3 , beaten until fluffy
  Vanilla 1⁄2 Teaspoon (Optional)
  Sifted confectioners' sugar 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
Directions

Preheat oven to 350° F.
Sift dry ingredients together and mix in dates and walnuts.
Fold in eggs and, if you like, add vanilla.
Spread evenly in a greased and floured 15 1/2"X10 1/2"X 1" jelly-roll pan (it will seem at first as though there isn't enough batter, but keep spreading it toward the corners; layer will be very thin).
Bake 20 minutes until lightly browned and top springs back when touched.
Cool upright in pan on a wire rack 10-12 minutes, then cut in 1 1/4"-1 1/2" squares.
Roll in confectioners' sugar while still warm, then cool before serving.
