Directions
For Base
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. Mold onto a plate in a round circle about 1 1/2 inches thick.
For Frosting
1. In a food processor, combine dates and lemon juice until smooth and creamy.
2. Spread the frosting on top of the torte.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Please note that the torte and frosting will be sticky if served at room temperature. If you wish to serve a firmer textured dessert, refrigerate it for a few hours before serving.
