Stuffed dates are traditional Middle Eastern fare. Dates can be stuffed with any kind of nut such as almond, walnut, macademia or cashew. The nuts compliment the robust and sweet flavor of the dried fruit and provide crunch.
Cashew-stuffed dates have got to be easiest to prepare dessert ever. Just buy a box of whole pitted dates from the supermarket, along with a pack of whole cashew nuts. Insert a cashew nut inside the date through the slit were the pit came out. Arrange in a platter and serve or store in a glass jar and give as gifts.
