RecipeReplica: Almond-paste Stuffed Dates

Print  Friendly and PDF
When I started making list for my Thanksgiving menu, I made it a point to browse for recipes from some of my favorite blogsites. When I came across this recipe in Yasmeen's blog, I knew I had my first dessert recipe. Yasmeen is a talented girl who excels in making easy dishes look elegant and elegant dishes easy. This dish is one such example that is so simple to make, so complex in taste, so nutritious a paste. That pretty much sums up this dessert. Enough said.
  • Dates - 25#s, pitted and slit open to make a cavity
  • Almonds - 1 1/2 cups, saoked and blanched
  • Honey - 2 tbsp (optional)
  • Toasted Pistachios - 2 tbsp, coarsely powdered (optional)
  • Skimmed Milk - 1 cup
  • In a blender, add the almonds and a cup of milk. Grind to a fine paste.
  • In a thick bottomed pan, add the ground paste with remaining milk and stir until the paste is thickened.
  • Cool the paste completely and stuff the hollowed almonds generously.
  • Sprinkle the coarsed pistachios on top of drizzle with honey. Both the choices are purely optional.
  • Serve at room temperature.
