Old Fashioned Date Pie

Adapted from The Canadian Family Cookbook, a Volume of Tried, Tested and Proven Recipes by Prominent Canadian Ladies, 1914

1 ¼ cups chopped dates
1 1/3 cups milk or cream
1 egg
unbaked 8 or 9 inch pie shell

Combine dates and milk and let sit in the fridge overnight. Heat dates and milk in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, until dates are soft. Cool.

Preheat oven to 400°. Zap date and milk mixture and egg in a blender. Pour into pie shell. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Bake for 35 minutes.

Not dissimilar to mincemeat in taste and appearance, but a lot cheaper to make and you can find the ingredients year round. If you like date squares, you'll love it.
