Based on a recipe that was found written on a piece of clay in Egypt dated to approximately 1600 BCE, which coincides when our tradition holds that the Children of Israel were slaves in Egypt. Perhaps Joseph – or even Moses enjoyed this Egyptian sweet…
1 cup of dates
1 tsp. of cinnamon
½ tsp. of ground cardamom
½ cup of fresh walnuts
A plate of crushed almonds
• Remove pits from the dates, crush dates and add a little bit of water to create a paste.
• Add the spices and mix
• Crush the walnuts and add them to the mix
• Roll the paste mixture into small candy-sized balls, coat the balls with hot honey and stuff them with the almonds.
• Serve and enjoy!
Wishing you a happy and kosher Pesach!
