1 kg. seedless dates
1/2 kg. sesame seeds
1/2 kg. roasted peeled almonds
1/2 kg. roasted hazelnuts
1 cup silan
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon powder
1/4 cup liqueur (almond or other)
In a medium pot, cook silan and dates until the dates are tender. Add cinnamon, liqueur and sugar and continue cooking until mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and immediately add the rest of the ingredients. Mix well.
While still hot, place 1/4 of the mixture on parchment paper. With wet palms, create a long cylinder about 3 cm. in diameter. Use the rest in the same way. Wrap rolls in plastic and freeze overnight. Remove from freezer and slice into 1 cm.-thick slices using a very sharp knife.
