Preparation

  1. To make the crust, blend the walnuts into flour in a blender. Add dates and coffee and blend well. Press evenly into the bottom of an 8 by 4-inch baking pan lined with parchment paper.
  2. To make the ladyfingers, blend all the ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth. Form a cookie layer in the pan and put into freezer.
  3. To make the cream, blend all the ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth and thick, adding water as needed. Spread half this mixture onto your crust, then place your lady fingers cookie on top of the cream. Spread on the rest of the cream and set in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours to harden.
  4. Use a small fine mesh strainer and put some cacao powder in it, to sprinkle evenly across the top of the tiramisu.
  5. Cut into squares and serve.
