Raweos

One batch makes about 10-12 Raweos. They will go fast, so you might as well double it. Enjoy!

1 1/4 cup pecans (soaked 2 hours or more)
1/2 cup pitted dates (soaked 1 hour or more)
1/4 cup cacao powder (or substitute carob, or half of each)
1/2 cup dried coconut flakes
2-3 tablespoons agave

Combine all ingredients in a food processor until you reach the desired texture. Roll into 1" balls, then flatten into cookie shapes on a Teflex sheet. Dehydrate for 6-12 hours, then flip and remove the Teflex, and dehydrate for another 1-2 hours. You want the cookies to still be soft and chewy.

For the creamy center:

1/2 cup cashews (soaked 2 hours or more)
2 tablespoons crystallized ginger (soaked 1 hour or more)
4-6 pitted dates (soaked 1 hour or more)
seeds from 1/4 vanilla bean (or 1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring)
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
pinch of cardamom

Blend all ingredients until smooth.

The assembly is pretty obvious: spread the filling between two cookies and devour! Chill or freeze the Raweos a bit before serving so the cream firms up and doesn't squish out the opposite end when you take a bite.

If you have extra filling left over, eat it on fruit, or a spoon. Or, thinly spread the filling on Teflex sheets and dehydrate for about 12 hours to form thin, soft biscuits that can be used as a base for a fruit dessert.

I made some yesterday and they were delicious and super easy to make. I made a 'dirt dessert' with them. I broke a couple of Raweos off and topped them with Carmella's whipped cream and repeated the layers. It was really good Im having more tonight for dessert

Wow, those look delicious! Do you think they might work w/o the ginger? Or should I try to find some at the co-op or healthfood store?
