Pistachio Stuffed Dates
Every time I make these pistachio stuffed dates I am hard pressed not to eat them all myself. Growing up, it was a holiday sweet my grandmother always served. Being a typical kid, I thought they looked strange so I never would try one ~ my loss. These sweets are perfect to cap off a lovely meal, serve with coffee, or to bring to a friend’s home.
|"Rich dates, stuffed with pistachios and dusted in fine sugar ~ delicious!"|
1 container whole Medjool dates (approximately 15-20)
1 package of pistachios, (approximately 3 shelled pistachios per date)
1/2 cup white sugar, (I prefer the fine bakers sugar)
1. Gently slide each date halfway through lengthwise to remove the pit.
2. Place 3 pistachios in each date.
3. Dip each filled date in the sugar; shake off excess.
4. Plate, serve and enjoy!
