12 large medjool dates

1/4 cup almond paste

Cut a slit in the side of each date and remove the pit. Pinch off a small piece of the almond paste and roll it into a cylinder that is a bit shorter than the date. Stuff the date with the almond paste and top with a whole almond. Repeat with remaining dates.
