Mix the dry ingredients together and add the chopped dates and almonds. Add eggs, milk and grate cold butter in. Knead it all together with your hand, well enough to form a smooth dough. Transfer the dough to a floured surface. Divide the dough in half and roll each half out thinly with a rolling pin. Cut into square blocks. If you have a favourite cut out, feel free to use it, so you get a nice pattern.
