It's Ramadan! And for Muslims, that means lotsa feasting along with the fasting :) I am in search of a recipe for what I'll call date almond circles (for lack of a better name). It's something I used to have at the house of a family friend. Traditionally, we break our fasts with whole dates but this lady used to make these delicious date circles. They were very simple but sooo tasty. The other ingredients I remember clearly were almonds and crushed Cornflakes, and they were definitely not cookies (no flour, mostly dates). Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Can you help me out? I've searched online but haven't found anything that quite fits the bill.
