    I would never have the patience to make these, but they’re so cute! Great job.

  2. Elizabeth Matthiesen says:

    These look fantastic, kids will adore them! First recipe I’ve seen here using dates. My mum used to make something with dates, I think it was just pastry with plenty of dates – I love it. Must see if I can figure out the recipe – unfortunately the rest of my family has gone now and I have no idea where mum’s recipe book ended up. 🙁
