    Very Good

    Made these without adding the sugar into the date mixture as dates are sweet enough on their own and cut the sugar in half in the bottom mixture. I will be taking them to our home group tonight - 12/8/10

    Disturbed that the ingredient list that is saved in this recipe doesn't match the ingredients listed. I made this with almonds and white whole wheat flour. Cook time was a little too long, 30-35 minutes would've been better. Even with that aside, found the end result to not be sweet enough. - 1/5/12
