Some of the most delicious and easiest sweet treat recipes I bake over and over come as a result of playgroup morning tea.
Running three sessions a week that can be a lot of morning tea treats in a week. The mum's volunteer to bring something simple to share with the other mums....oh and a lot of the kids get to nibble as well.
So my latest treat came from "Hayley" know here as "Hayley's Date Slice"
2/3 cup castor sugar
1pkt Marie biscuits or something suitable for crushing
coconut to sprinkle on the bottom of the pan.
Line 20-30cm tin with baking paper and sprinkle coconut over the paper.
Melt butter and sugar.
Add dates and cook until they are "jammy"
Take off the heat to cool slightly then stir in the egg.
Crush the biscuits and stir into the mixture.
Spread and press mixture into the baking tin and refrigerate.
Oh it is delicious and I can say I have eaten my fair share of this batch.
