Marzipan Stuffed Dates with Pistachios
These little jewels are so cute and flavorful with just enough sweetness to pass them off as a light dessert or serve them as a passed appetizer or snack. Buy the dates and pistachios in a bulk section and make as little or as much as you want without spending hardly anything.
Juicy dried dates stuffed with sweet almond paste, crunchy pistachios and lightly dusted with powdered sugar.
