Recipe Notes

*  To Pit Dates: To pit the date, slice the date open lengthwise, and use the tip of the blade to pry the pit out.

**  To Toast Nuts:  Toast walnuts in a small skillet over low heat for approximately 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Watch the nuts carefully so that they don’t burn.
