1 cup chopped walnuts

1 (8 ounce) package (1 1/2 cups) chopped dates

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon ground cardamom

1 (17.3-Ounce) package frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 400°F.

I tried this recipe and everyone loved it. I decided to stray from the recipe a bit and substituted a couple of ingredients. First, I used apricots, perlette raisins and mangoes that I had dried from my garden. Second, I used pecans instead of walnuts. Delicious! Thanks for a fast and tasty recipe.
