Date Nut Torte

Whether I serve my torte with coffee at a luncheon or in the evening when friends visit, I always get compliments. My husband (we've been married 42 years), three children and five grandchildren are all good eaters, and it's a joy to prepare this dessert for them, too! Cooking is something I've always enjoyed. I also like sewing, quilting and gardening. My husband and I travel by trailer as often as we can, and we're members, too, of group called "Laborers for Christ" that helps congregations build churches and schools.
