Stuffed Dates – Arabian Dish

March 2nd, 2007

12-16 dates
1 tsp lemon rind
12-16 almonds
100 grams ricotta cheese
2 tbsps castor sugar

Slit dates carefully and remove the seeds. Gently open them and set aside.

Finely grate lemon rind. Roast almonds and set aside.

Mix ricotta cheese and castor sugar well. You can use cream cheese or fresh chenna, well mashed, instead of ricotta cheese.

Add a pinch of lemon rind and mix. Make a cone with butter paper, put the cheese stuffing into it and pipe it into the date slits.

Place an almond on top of the cheese in each date. You can use blanched almonds or cashewnuts or walnuts too. Instead of dates you can stuff prunes (dried apricots) similarly. Serve at room temperature.
