UmmBinat, I enjoyed these sweet little morsels today with homemade iced coffee. Unfortunately I couldn't remember where in town I had seen fresh dates. Instead I used good quality organic, unsulphured deglet noor dried dates and Nancy's brand (Oregon-made!) cream cheese softened to room temperature. Rose water would be a delicious addition as an afterthought...Sprinkled a light dusting of ground cardamom! Thank you!
- fresh dates, pitted and sliced in half (or soft dried whole dates)
- puck cream cheese spread (not regular cream cheese, it's creamier, softer and tastier, found in Arab shops though Danish)
