  • Preheat oven to 375ºF (190ºC). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. 
  • Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg in large mixing bowl. Stir well to blend.
  • Cream butter and sugars together in separate large bowl using an electric mixer, until light and fluffy in texture. Beat in eggs.
  • Mix dry ingredients with creamed mixture. Stir in raisins, nuts and dates. Mix with hands to incorporate fruit into a smooth dough.
  • Divide dough into 4 equal portions. Place 2 portions on each prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Shape each dough portion into a strip approximately 10" (25 cm) long, 2" (5 cm) wide and 1/2" (1 cm) thick.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until light golden. Dough should feel soft, but will become firm upon cooling.
  • Cool 10 minutes on baking sheets; then place on wire racks to cool completely.
  • Glaze (Optional): Combine icing sugar and water to make a smooth glaze. Drizzle over uncut bars. Let glaze dry, then cut strips diagonally into 3/4" (4 cm) sticks.
