These are two varieties of sweets that you simply cannot resist.
Slit each date and carefully remove the seed from within, without breaking the date.
In half the dates, in place of the seed, stuff a piece of walnut, so that a part of the walnut sticks out. That’s it! And it tastes great.
This one needs a little more effort but it is nice to serve both the varieties together. Pour boiling water over the almonds and wait for 3 – 4 minutes. Peel them. Grind the almonds with the date paste, form ovals and stuff the dates with these. Serve.
Serve the dates stuffed with blanched whole almonds or whole cashew nuts.
