Almond Stuffed Dates

This is a creative way to change up dates, Moroccan style. I LOVE dates and my favorite are the Medjool Dates, they’re soft and plump and incredibly good for your health too.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb dates
  • 1 cup ground almonds
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp orange blossom water
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

Instructions

  • Make a lengthwise cut in the dates and remove the pits, set aside.
  • Mix together the almonds, sugar, orange blossom water, and cinnamon to make a paste. If it's too dry, slowly add more almond blossom water.
  • Roll small cylinders out of the almost paste about the same length as the dates and 1/2 of the width.
  • Insert the almond paste cylinder into the cut dates and press the sides of the dates firmly around the paste.

Notes

I made the little slits in the paste for added visual effect using a fork.
