Date Nut Bread

2 cups chopped dates
1 1/2 cup boiling water
1 Tablespoon butter or margarine
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 egg
2 cups brown sugar
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped walnuts

Pour water over dates, add butter and soda. Allow to cool. Add egg, brown sugar, flour, salt, and vanilla. Mix well. Stir in chopped walnuts. Spoon into loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour. If using smaller pans, less baking time. Cool and slice. May also be made into sandwiches with cream cheese filling.
