This was quite good. I enjoy the taste but the texture is not really for me. I find it a little too chewy. That may have been because the baking time should have been about 5-10 minutes less. I was busy and forgot to check on it. I did learn something from this though... not all dates are pitted when you buy them. And I also learned that dates are VERY HARD to pit. That is a lesson I will never forget! lol Thanks for the recipe!
