Notes

Sharon's Tips:
Be sure to purchase dates which have already been pitted, preferably Medjool dates.
Don't make the same mistake I did.  The first time I made stuffed dates I put the package of dates in the refrigerator before stuffing them. They were so stiff I had a hard time opening them enough to stuff in the cream cheese and almonds.
