This is an old family recipe that uses our Texas pecans. I've made it often for birthdays and family gatherings. My brother-in-law said it was the only cake he's ever eaten in which the cake tastes as good as the frosting!
I developed this torte myself, and it seems that everyone I serve it to enjoys it. This recipe requires relatively few ingredients, is quite easy to make, looks sensational and, most important, tastes great!

Mother used to make this dessert only once each year, for Christmas dinner. When I was a child, this torte seemed like the very best food in the world, and it was so difficult to wait a whole year for it. When I grew up and became a mother, I decided to change that—today, I make Chewy Date Torte not only at Christmas, but at Thanksgiving and other special occasions as well. For variety, I sometimes add a cup of chopped apples to the recipe. It is every bit as tasty!
