    Happy to see this.....in India they use date paste to make Date Ghari, which are little chapathys stuffed with date paste; flavored with rosewater, served for afternoon tea. The only problem is that they use much ghee and sugar in the recipe. I like this better. Thank you and your mom (sniff !!!) ever so much
