MATRIMONIAL SQUARES (Date Squares)

1 lb dates, chopped (about 3 cups)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups water
1 tbsp lemon juice

1/2 cup soft margarine or unsalted butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
3 tbsp granulated sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup rolled oats

To make filling, in a saucepan, combine dates, 1/4 cup granulated
sugar, water and lemon juice. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and
simmer gently, stirring often, until thickened--10 to 15 minutes.
Cool. For base and topping, cream margarine or butter. Add brown
sugar and 3 tbsp granulated sugar. Beat well. Combine flour, baking
soda and oats and stir well. Stir flour mixture into margarine or
butter mixture. Mixture should be a little crumbly. Pat two-thirds
of flour mixture into bottom of 9-inch baking dish that has been
oiled or lined with parchment. Spread date mixture on top. Sprinkle
with remaining flour mixture. Bake in preheated 350 F oven for 25
to 30 minutes or until top is browned lightly. Cool and cut into
squares.
