June 28, 2020

2 tablespoons soft butter
1 package of our date bar mix*
1/4 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup hot water
1 cup chilled whipping cream
2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon powdered instant coffee
1 teaspoon vanilla

Heat oven to 400°. Mix butter and crumbly mix with fork; stir in nuts. Spread in ungreased baking pan, 13x9x2 inches. Bake 10 minutes. Crumble with fork; cool. Stir water into date filling; cool. Beat cream, sugar, coffee and vanilla until stiff.

Spread ½ cup crumbled mixture in freezer tray or baking pan, 10x6x1½ inches. Spoon on half the whipped cream mixture; spread gently. Top with ½ cup crumbled mixture, the date filling ½ crumbled mixture, remaining whipped cream and remaining crumbled mixture. Chill 4 to 5 hours or freeze just until firm. 6 to 8 servings.
