Just fabulous and incredibly quick to make . I have not done the icing and did not add nuts - just personal preference. I think my mother used to make this and roll into balls so there's a thought for next time. Thanks, Jubes.

Oh, yeah ~ Another great lemon fix! Did the recipe as written & was not disappointed! Well, actually I added something to both the slice & the icing ~ A bit of lemon zest just 'cause I'm a sucker for a lemon! Really enjoyed the combo of fruits here! And, by the way, I didn't have unsalted nuts either, but did have some salty cashews around so simply rinsed them off, patted them dry & used them! Thank you so much for a great bar that I'm happy to add to my finger foods counter! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my partners in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #21]

Delicious, Leggy Peggy used sunflower seeds and so did I as I was making them for a littlie, and as it was the adults ate them all! I used dried apricots instead of dates which worked just as well. Thanks!
