Why I Love This Recipe

The almonds and dates are just two of the foods traditional eaten during the Jewish holiday of the Festival of the Trees. I love it because not only do I serve it along with other items to adults during the holiday, it's easy enough to serve year-round to kids as an after-school snack.


Ingredients You'll Need

1 (8 oz.) container whipped cream cheese
2 Tbs. powdered sugar
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1 (8 oz.) pkg. pitted dried plain dates
1/4 cup (approx.) sliced or whole almonds


Directions

In a small mixing bowl, use a hand whisk to combine cream cheese, sugar and lemon juice.


Spoon mixture into a small freezer bag, press out excess air and seal.


Use a sharp knife to widen the slit in each date. Avoid cutting all the way through.


Use a scissors to cut a small corner off the freezer bag, then pipe in about a teaspoonful of the cream cheese mixture into each.


Top each date with almonds. You can simply press in an almond (photo center), or use your imagination to create a peacock (photo left) or a butterfly (photo right).
