      Amazingly yummy results! I made this in the microwave in a large clear Pyrex bowl (using techniques similar to those for microwave toffee and peanut brittle). The texture is a little like maple fudge, with a wonderfully fine grain (not gummy). Cut with a very sharp knife and smooth pressure. Carol is right to recommend powdered sugar to dress it up. Might also make sense to press this into a pan, sprinkle ground pecans on top, and cut it into squares. I will make this again as soon as I have an excuse--even a flimsy one! -Amy

      this is an outstanding recipe and it is a great christmas recipe with a little lemon in the mix. When sliced, roll pieces in powdered or granulated sugar. If you like dates, you'll love this. Carol
