Aunt Billie's Date & Nut Roll

I found this in my husband's aunts recipe box. I'm not seeing how this would be easy to roll, but maybe i'd have to try it to see if it works. I'm just copying down as it is written. I think the confectioners sugar should be put in the pan??? Interesting recipe.

1/2 cup Eagle Brand

2 teaspoons lemon juice

2 cups (1 1/2#) vanilla wafer crumbs

1 cup chopped dates (fine)

1/2 cup chopped nuts

Confectioners sugar

Blend Eagle Brand & lemon juice. Add vanilla crumbs. Mix dates & nuts. Sprinkle flat surface with confectioners sugar. Lightly roll & pat crumbs mixture in 8X10 inch pan. Spread with dates mixture. Roll as jelly roll. Wrap in wax paper. Chill 6 to 8 hrs. Slice, serve with hard sauce or whipped cream.
