Food for the Gods is a delicious chewy pastry that can be eaten as a dessert or as a snack. The dates and walnuts are so good it makes you crave for more
1 cup butter cubed
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup dates, chopped
1 cup walnuts, chopped
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven at 350F and slightly grease and flour a 12×8 inch pan.
Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the brown and white sugar. Stir until the sugar granules are dissolved. Remove from heat and set aside.
Gradually add the eggs to the butter and sugar mixture. Beat it well. Fold in the dates and the walnuts.
Place the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add the creamed egg mixture and mix until well combined. Do not over mix.
Spoon the mixture to the greased pan. Smooth the surface with a spatula. Bake it in the preheated oven for 30-40 minutes or until it is lightly browned. Insert a toothpick at the middle and make sure it comes out clean.
Place it over a wire rack and let it cool completely. Slice it into squares before serving. Wrap in colored plastic wrappers or place them in an air-tight container for storing.
