Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe came from my Daddy's baby sister, whose name was Isabel, but was always called "Baby". I did not know her given name for quite a long while. Every time we would visit her she would make her date pies for us, as we all enjoyed them so much. She would always say "They didn't turn out, so I almost threw them out!" Of course they were never thrown out, but gobbled up by a date pie-hungry crew! They were always delicious, and we never saw anything wrong with them!
