Dates - what to make with them

haiku. | Jan 12, 201606:00 AM     14

Firstly, hope this posts correctly. I've been avoiding this site since the revamp as I struggled to make a post to a regional board...

I have a huge bag of medjool dates in my freezer. I'd bought them last year in a date frenzy (I love the stuff), ate about half of it before getting over it, then had them get that sugary white coating. I was too busy to think about using them then, so pitted the lot and stuck it in a freezer. Now I'm moving in 2 weeks and want to use them rather than tossing them.

Any good suggestions for baked/cooked dishes using dates? I'd prefer a non-raw application, as I'm not sure of condition after freezing.

So far I have:
- My mom's date loaf
- Joanne Chang's Pecan Date Shortbreads - picked up from another date thread on chowhound
- Sticky toffee pudding. This is a maybe, as we're in the middle of a summer heatwave here.
