The Temple Institute: Mikdash Kids: Goodies



u B'Shvat - the new year for trees. What better way to celebrate than to enjoy a date & nut cake. See our recipe below!

Here is a delicious & easy, no-bake recipe for Tu B'Shvat:

  • 1 3/4 pkg. sweet biscuits
  • 1 lb. fresh dates
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 lb. butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
  • 1 egg

Grease a loaf pan. Break the biscuits in a bowl. Pit & cut up the dates. Place the cut up dates, butter, sugar & nuts into a saucepan & stir on a low flame until smooth. Beat the egg & add quickly. Add the hot ingredients to the biscuits in the bowl & mix well. Press lightly into the pan, packing corners well. Place it in fridge to set. Once it is cold, slice it up and serve it.

Let us know how it comes out!

Did you know?

There are eight different types of dates grown in Israel.

Date palms have been growing in Israel since the dawn of time.

Ancient date pits, 2000 years old, were discovered in an archaeological dig thirty years ago at the Masada fortress near the Dead Sea. One was recently planted. The young sapling is today over 30 centimeters tall. It's nickname is Methuselah.
