Default Was someone looking for a recipe for Chinese CHews?

This recipe was just posted on rec.food.recipes. I don't know if it's the
same type the poster was looking for.

Chinese Chews

Here is my cookie recipe contribution, although it is more of a bar
recipe.
This is a favorite that my mom made all the time as we were growing
up,
especially at Christmas. It just brings back so many fond memories. My
mom
is long gone, but when I make these, it brings me right back to when
we were
having tea and cookies together.

Ingredients:

3/4 c. all purpose flour
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. chopped dates
3/4 c. walnuts
2 eggs
Confectioners' sugar

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Blend or sift together flour, sugar,
baking
powder and salt. Add dates and walnuts. Beat until light. Add eggs to
flour
mixture and combine well. Spread batter in a greased 9 inch square
pan. Bake
in a 350-degree oven for about 30 minutes. Cut into fingers while
still warm
and then roll in confectioners' sugar.

This one is extremely good.

@@@@@ Now You're Cooking! Export Format

Crisp Chocolate Caramel Bars

bars/squares, recipe b, tested

1- 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter, chilled
14 oz. pkg. caramels, unwrapped
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup butter
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter
1-3/4 cups crisp rice cereal

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine flour and powdered sugar in large bowl and mix well.
Cut in 1/2 cup chilled butter until particles are fine and butter is well
distributed.

Press into a 13x9' pan and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes until
light golden brown. *MORE LIKE 15-20 MINUTES*
In heavy skillet, melt caramels, milk, and 1/4 cup butter over low heat,
stirring frequently until melted and smooth. Spread over baked crust.

In another saucepan, melt chocolate chips and 1/4 cup butter, stirring
until smooth. Stir in cereal. Drop this mixture by spoonfuls over caramel
and carefully spread to cover. Cool completely, then cut into squares. 48
bars

Note...this needs to sit over night for the crust and caramels to set
properly.
