We’ll be making these a lot. They’re so easy to put together and these flavors together are delicious. Thanks for this!

I WILL make again, but true confession, I'm lazy. I used all the same ingredients but simply slit the date, sprinkled with pepper and fennel popped in 2 raisins and the nut. Had to use a walnut since we had no pistachios, but I'm sure that would be even better.
