  1. Very easy to make- I made a crust with 1 1/2 cups walnuts, 4 medjool dates and 1 tsp vanilla. Then lured filling in top and put in freezer. I do wish they would put subtitles on the recipe- like crust, filling and topping- some of these recipes you have to figure out – not tough but would be easier with more clearly defined

  2. I wanted to make this, put it in a cooler and bring it along on a road trip. Do you think it will hold up after being out of freezer for so long?
