Easy to Bake Food for the Gods

Moist, sweet and chewey ---a goodie that would really make you feel good!  Food for  the Gods ---my husband has been asking me why the name? I would only answer that he would feel like he's in heaven the moment he takes a bite. 

I had first a taste Food for the Gods the first year I started teaching. At Christmas time, the students would usually give us gifts and goodies. They were usually wrapped in colorful plastics. They do not only look pretty but yummy as well.
This is the goodie that I can proudly say I can make even without a copy of the recipe.

1 1/4 c plain flour, sifted
1 c butter, soften
1 c brown sugar
3/4 c white sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 c chopped walnuts
1 c chopped pitted dates
3 eggs

Mix the all the dry ingredients in a bowl (except walnuts and dates).
Cream the butter with the two types of sugar.
Add the eggs, one at a time.  Continue mixing until soft and fluffy.

Put in the mixed dry ingredients little by little while continuously mixing the buter-sugar-egg mixture.
Fold in the walnuts and dates.
Bake in a preheated oven at 175C for the first 10 minutes and pull down the temperature at 150C for the remaining 20 minutes or until done.  (Do the toothpick test)
