Date Nut Torte

2 cups Raisins
2 cups walnuts

1 cup dates, pitted and soaked for at least an hour
1/2 lemon, juiced

1. In a food processor, combine raisins and walnuts and blend until well blended and moist. (This will take a few minutes and you may see it forming a ball. Just make sure the raisins come out looking like a fudgey mixture and are not still grainy.)
2. Remove from processor and mold onto plate in a round circle about 1 1/2" thick.

1. In food processor, combine dates and lemon juice until smooth and creamy.
2. Spread frosting on top of the torte.

Note: I like to serve this at room temperature as the frosting and torte are still sticky, but if you want to be able to slice it easier and have it harder, refrigerate for a few hours.

This sounds delicious! I just made raw vegan brownies on my blog with dates that are absolutely tasty.
