Ingredients

  • 1 8- to 10-ounce tube almond paste
  • teaspoons orange blossom water
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon hot water
  • 1 pound Medjool dates
  • Chef notes

    The natural sweetness of the dates pairs perfectly with the nuttiness of the almond paste. Best of all, these tasty bites could not be easier to assemble.

    Preparation

    Combine the almond paste, orange blossom water, salt and water in a food processor and process until smooth.

    Remove pits from dates, and stuff each date with a spoonful of almond paste. Serve as-is or use a paring knife to score a cross-hatch pattern in the paste. Serve at room temperature with tea or coffee.
