Add dates and process again until chunky.

Cream Layer preparation: Mix sour cream, sugar and vanilla until well incorporated.

Assembly: Spread Date mixture evenly over pre-baked crust. Spread cream layer evenly over date mixture. Bake in middle of oven for 25 minutes at 350 degrees F until filling jiggles only slightly in the middle. Cool immediately in refrigerator or on dry ice at least 40 minutes until filling has cooled down and set.
