Pan Cookies submitted by Mom Johnson
A recipe from my Grandma Werner......made as a Christmas "cookie".

Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs. Mix in flour, cinnamon and chopped dates. Divide batter between 2 small bread loaf pans and smooth tops. "Let cold water run over the tops and pour off. Then sprinkle with sugar and chopped pecans." Bake at 325 for about 1/2 hour. Cool, then cut into 1/2 inch slices. Keeps well.
