*Found at local Indian market.  You should be able to find pressed dates, baking dates, or date paste (as far as I can tell they are all the same) at Indian or Middle Eastern markets.  If you cannot find this ingredient here is how to make your own:  soak 1 cup pitted dates in 2/3 cups boiling water for 1+ hours (until SOFT) and then puree.
