Cheese Stuffed Dates
- pitted dates, any amount you want
- cream cheese or mascarpone cheese
- raw almonds, skinned or not
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.
