Almond Butter Dates

BM # 46  Week 2  Day 1

When I chose the theme Nuts and legumes I had no idea as to what I would be posting. I was totally blank . I decided to give my head a break and not get worked up with the theme. Rarely do I choose a theme where I have to put effort in my thoughts.
I remember on my search while doing Around the world in 30 days, I had read some where about the almond paste, and had wanted to try making it, so I made these stuffed dates. Dates and almonds both are nutritious and ideal for kids, and kids will appreciate these if well decorated.

I choose Kimia Dates, which are slightly dry and less sticky, though you could choose any dates you wish . This is my Day 1 post for BM # 46 under nuts and Legumes for lunch box series.

Almond Butter Dates

20 almonds, soaked overnight, peeled
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp butter
Few drops vanilla extract
Cake sprinklers
Make a fine paste of almonds and sugar.
Using a non stick pan, add the paste and butter and cook till dry.
Add vanilla extract.
Cool and fill this in piping bag.

How to go about
Make a vertical cut and Remove the seeds from the dates.
Split it open and fill in the paste.
Now close the date and pipe out a clean line to cover on the slit .
Sprinkle some colorful sprinklers or vermicelli.
Chill and serve .
