How to Make Cheese Stuffed Dates

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut each of the dates in half. If they are not pitted, now is the time to pit them. They look like little Lego sized canoes. Line them up on a plate.
  2. Take your cheese of choice and put it into a bag, like a sandwich bag. Spoon the messy stuff in and cut off a little snippet of the corner of the bag. Squeeze the cheese into each of the little hollow dates. Tip each one with an almond. I learned an easy way to skin them, and had skinned a bunch earlier, but darned if I could find them when I needed them. So the ones in this picture are regular raw almonds.
  3. To skin (blanch) almonds: Bring a pot of water to boil. Add some almonds and boil them for about 1 minute.
    Drain them and put in cold water for about 30 seconds. Drain again and put on a towel or paper towel. Cover with a towel and rub vigorously. The skins just come right off! It just makes a prettier presentation sometimes to have 'blanched' almonds.
