Scale

Ingredients

If desired garnish with mint leaves and lemon zest.

Instructions

Using your fingers, gently split dates in two halves and remove pit. Place on a serving platter, opening them up  to better hold the filling.

Using a pastry bag or spoon, fill dates with creme fraiche.  Push a few pistachios or nut of choice into the filling.  Tuck in a few rose petals, depending on size of petals, letting them stick up above the date – a toothpick or other pointy kitchen tool can help with this.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper and a very light dusting of cardamon.

If desired garnish with mint leaves and lemon zest.

Notes

If making ahead – feel free to stuff dates with creme fraiche and pistachios ( store in fridge and wrap in plastic wrap)  but add rose petals right before serving to prevent wilting.

Make 24 bites – delicious as an appetizer or dessert.
