Ingredients

Date Pecan Filling:

3 cups dates, coarsely chopped

1/4 cup sugar

1 1/2 cups water

1 cup pecans, finely chopped

Cookie Base:

3/4 cup unsalted butter

1 cup light brown sugar

1 3/4 cups sifted unbleached all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups rolled oats

Directions

  1. To prepare filling, mix together dates, sugar and water in saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until thickened (about 10 minutes). Allow to cool. Add pecans.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cream butter and brown sugar. Combine remaining ingredients and stir into butter mixture until well blended. Press half of the filling into a 9x13-inch glass baking dish. Spread with cooled filling. Cover with remaining filling mixture, patting lightly.
