Date Slices

Mum used to make these when I was very little - I loved dates and figs then and these are very moorish

1/2 lb stoned dates
4 oz self raising flower
6 oz caster sugar
1 pint water - dash of vanilla essence
4oz porridge oats
4 oz butter

Boil the dates with the water, cool and add vanilla. Mix the flour, oats and sugar together and rub in the fat. Press half the mixture into a tin 7 inches by 11 inches (sorry I don't do metric) cover with the dates and top with remaining mixture. Cook at 350 degrees F for 20 to 30 minutes. Mark into slices whilst hot. Leave in tin to cool. Decant from tin - I store these in tins.
