Serves 3 (if you are serving one date per person, otherwise double or triple this recipe)
3 large dates
9 whole roasted almonds
3 tablespoons or dollups of creme fraiche
lemon or orange zest
several pistachios, roughly chopped
Wash and dry the dates. Make a clean cut to open the date and remove any pits.
Stuff each date with 3 whole almonds and close them.
On a plate or platter, arrange the dates in a row. Dollup the creme fraiche on top of each one. Finish with lemon or orange zest and chopped pistachios.
Serve at room temperature with small forks for those who prefer it.
