Date & Almond filled Shortbread

I tasted something like these little biscuits some years ago and have been wanting to make them for ages - so after a few weeks of working on the recipe I think I fianlly got it! These are a wonderful mouthful of an almond shortbread with a rich date and roasted almond filling. Great as a special treat with coffee

Date & Almond filled Shortbread


Date paste can be bought in Kilo packs from Middle Eastern grocers.
You can fill a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2'' plain nozzle with the date mix to make it easier to use because it's quite sticky.

Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Rose are the best wines to pair with Date & Almond filled Shortbread.

I wouldn't know cause they haven't lasted long enough for me to find out. I guess kept in an air tight container, they should last a week or so...
