Dear Lindy, My sister made your recipe up and it tastes like the childhood chinese chews we had. However I have the original one from my mum and the quantities are very different and may have been possible with rationing (post war not during the war) i think. Here is our version Ingredients 1 oz butter 3 oz sugar 1 egg ½ tsp vanilla essence 2 oz SR flour 3 oz dates 2 oz walnuts 1 oz icing sugar Oven 190C Method • Cream the butter and sugar together • Beat in egg and vanilla • Mix in flour • Chop dates and nuts and add to the mixture • Turn into greased 8” sandwich tin • Bake for 15 mins • Cool in tin • Cut into fingers • Dust in icing sugar
