       Title: Matrimonial Cake
  Categories: Canadian, Bars
       Yield: 1 servings
   1 1/2 c  Flour, all purpose
   1 1/2 c  Rolled oats
       1 c  Brown sugar; packed

   "This recipe in some old cookbooks is called Date Sandwich Cake. Other
   variations are Raisin Squares or Fig Squares. .. Date Squares
   (Matrimonial Cake, if you happen to come from the West) are a real
   nostalgia treat. The fillings in the 30s recipes was extremely sweet.
   Today's versions reduce the sugar in the filling, since the dates are
   sweet enough, and are often microwaved. Raisin Puff, an old favorite
   in P.E.I. is somewhat similar, with raisin filling sandwiched between
   layers of soft cookie dough instead of an oatmeal mixture."
   Filling: In saucepan, cook dates, sugar, lemon juice and water over
   medium heat, stirring often, until the dates are soft, about 15
   minutes. Let cool.
     In a bowl, combine flour, rolled oats, sugar, baking soda and salt;
   blend in butter until mixture is crumbly. Pat half onto bottom of 9
   inch square pan. Spread filling evenly over the top. Sprinkle with
   the remaining flour mixture, patting lightly. Bake in a 350F oven for
   30 to 35 minutes or until nicely browned. Let cool; cut into squares.
   MAKES: 36 SQUARES VARIATION: Mincemeat Squares
   : Use 2 cups mincemeat instead of date filling.
