    Beautiful. Tastes great!! My daughter loved it too.  -  17 Aug 2009


    This recipe tastes better warm than cold, but it is good either way. 15 dates are perhaps too many if you are using high quality, plump, large dates. Makes it almost too datey. An excellent Suhoor meal which has not left me hungry yet today and it's been 8 hours. So easy to prepare!  -  13 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
