Medjool dates are nature’s version of candy. Super sweet and versatile, I keep dried dates in my fridge for a quick and easy appetizer idea like this one, just to have on hand as a snack, or a lovely addition to a quick bread, cookies or even chopped into a salad. This delectable small bite involves pitted dates filled with a creamy and floral-scented mixture of ricotta cheese and orange flower water. Not to mention a touch of pure vanilla extract for another level of added natural sweetness. Topped off with a sprinkling of pistachios or almonds, this small bite is a wonderful idea for your next dinner get together.
