Pistachio Filled Dates


In Saudi some typical ingredients for filling and covering dates would be coconut, chocolate, sesame seeds and nuts. I made this mixture with pistachios and orange blossom water. We prefer to have light desserts during Ramadan since everyone is full from iftar and not in the mood for a heavy dessert. This plumb filled date is perfect Arabic coffee or habek tea.

20 dates, pitted (I used sukary)
1/4 cup pistachios
1 teaspoon orange blossom water
1. In a small food processor add nuts and orange blossom water, grind until a paste has formed.
2. Carefully open dates keeping closed side intact and with a small spoon fill with nut paste, pack in. Place on a serving platter and serve.

  • Thanks ladies. You know I never started eating dates until like 6 years ago and now I love them so much.

  • great and simple idea. Seems like it would be similar in a way to the taste of baklava, but much less work and healthier! I’ve always liked eating dates and almonds or walnuts together as a snack.
