These are nothing to look at, but the combination of sweet dates with salty nuts is pretty wonderful.

24Israeli or medjool dates
48Marcona almonds or other salted roasted skinned almond
Confectioners' sugar (for sprinkling)

1. With a small knife, make a vertical slit down one side of the dates. Remove the pit and stuff with 2 almonds. Close the opening by pressing it with your fingers. Continue with the remaining dates and almonds

2. Arrange the dates on a plate and sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar.
