I found this recipe and was curious to try it since I already had all ingredients at home (I used hazelnuts instead of almonds though) and since it used dates instead of sugar. It just happened to taste very much like Christmas, so for this year it will be part of the sweets we make! Great that you can prepare in advance and store it in the freezer so you can bring out a delicious snack whenever you want (no, you don’t need to thaw it)
This recipe yields a 450 g cinnamon date roll (1 pound) and approximately 25 slices
Please note that you need a food processer for this (I almost killed my blender).
