My mother served this dessert one year after a big holiday meal. We all thought it was delicious. Since then I've made it for various clubs that meet with dessert on their minds! -Carla Hodenfield, Ray, North Dakota

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 11, 2013

I saw this recipe in Taste of Home several years ago and made it for Christmas. My family and guests raved about it! I made another Date Nut Log a few days later to take to a party, where once again it was a hit! It has become a family favorite. It is simple to make and is always a crowd pleaser :)

I had been looking for this recipe for years. My Great grandmother always made it for the holidays. It was easy to make and was just as good as I remembered it . It was always served with real whipped cream.
