cup sifted flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
teaspoon salt
1 cups cut dates
1 cups cut walnuts or pecans
3 egg yolks, slightly beaten
1 cup brown sugar
3 egg whites, stiffly beaten

Sift flour, baking powder and salt over the cut dates and nuts, and mix well. Stir in the slightly beaten egg yolks. Fold sugar into the stiffly beaten egg whites and fold into the date mixture. Bake in 2 8×8 greased and floured pans in moderate oven (350 F.) about 25 minutes until firm. Cool slightly before cutting into squares. Serve hot or cold with whipped cream.
Note: 1 large pan may be used for the baking; in this case, time is increased 10 to 15 minutes.
