Yemeni Date Balls With Almonds

9 dried dates
9 whole almonds
2 tablespoons white sesame seeds (approximately) or 2 tablespoons brown sesame seeds (approximately)
ground cardamom (my contribution)


Remove the pit from each date. Turn the date inside out. Place a whole almond in the middle of the date, then roll it into a ball shape (remember you are rolling the date that is inside out). Wash your hands because they will be sticky! Put the sesame seeds in a deep bowl. Place the date balls in the bowl and gently shake the balls around to cover the dates with the sesame seeds. Arrange on a serving platter and if desired, lightly dust with ground cardamom. Serve immediately or cover well and refrigerate.
