FBR TIPS

  • After processing the walnuts and 6 dates, stop the food processor, remove the blade and grab a handful of the dates and walnuts to see if they are sticking.  If you feel that they are sticking together enough to form a crust, then you don't need to add the additional dates

 

  • If you like the taste of pumpkin spices, I would recommend adding the optional spices.  Try the filling after you add the all spice before adding anymore spices.  With raw recipes flavours are really enhanced, so you don' want to over flavour it
