Food for the Gods

Someone "suggested" I try to tackle making Food for the Gods, also known as Ambrosia.
By suggested, I mean sent me an email with the recipe and said make it. Amado, *cough*..
For some reason this pastry has a holiday feel to it but don't make the mistake of
comparing it to fruit cake.
VERY VERY VERY DIFFERENT!!!
If made correctly, the pastry should be chewy and moist, not heavy like a cake.
The sweetness should just be enough and not over power the dates.

It was easier to make than I thought.
And its making me want a stand mixer even more. 
Ahem Santa.. 
Well maybe get me a Canon 5D Mark II first then a KitchenAid in Imperial Black please.



Gotta jazz it up a bit so I picked up a container from the store and brought it over
to our friends house when we had brunch.
I love how my friends will eat anything I make even if it screws up their diet.
Can you say sabotage?!
