2 cups nuts (I used pecan, hazelnut, walnut, and macadamia)
12 – 14 Medjool dates (chopped and pitted)
1/3 cup water
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line cookie sheet with nuts. Roast nuts for 5 – 7 minutes until lightly browned.
For torte – heat oven to 425 degrees.
Spray pie pan with a little oil.
In a small sauce pan heat dates in water for 5 – 7 minutes until dates are soft. Remove from heat. Stir in honey, vanilla, lemon juice, cinnamon, and salt.
Lightly beat eggs. Stir into date mixture and mix well. Stir in nuts.
Pour mixture into pie pan.
Bake for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 325 degrees. Bake for another 20 – 25 minutes until torte is set in the middle.
