I agree with chia and UmmBinat, it was impossible to slice even after freezing for some time. I processed it in the food processor until I got oil coming out and forming a moister dough, but it still is very crumbly. Next time I make it, maybe I try it with soaked raisins and three tablespoons honey, leaving out the sugar.
The taste was liked very much, though, by the sweet teeth here around :) Thanks for sharing!

i'm very iffy about this dessert. the taste was good, but it was impossible to slice this as it just crumbled even though i did refrigerate it overnight. i brought it into my office and , to be honest, it wasn't visually appealing. i wonder if adding tahini or more honey would improve the color and consistancy.
