Date Squares

750    ml   chopped dates
60     ml   white sugar
300    ml   water

Cook the above in a small pot, stirring constantly until
it begins to thicken (10 or 15 minutes).  Allow to cool.

440    ml   flour
2.5    ml   baking soda
5      ml   salt (I usually just throw in a few shakes of the
                  salt shaker)
180    ml   butter
250    ml   brown sugar (packed)
375    ml   quick oats

Cut the flour and sugar into the butter.  Add the baking soda, 
salt and oats.  You should have a crumbly mixture.

Spread half of this mixture on the bottom of a greased baking 
dish (24x34 cm).  Press it down firmly.  Spread the date mixture 
evenly on top.  Sprinkle the remaining crumble mixture on top.

Bake for 25 - 30 minutes at 175 C.
