Stuffed Dates

As much as I love my job as a food photographer, it's always a great time when we can do something a little more creative and fun with food.  This was one of those days.

The recipe for these Stuffed Dates with Ricotta, Pistachios & Honey can be found in the Jan/Feb 2012 issue of Clean Eating Magazine!

Stacking these yummy Ricotta, Pistachio and Honey stuffed Dates were not easy!  First of all, these dates are basically the size of small eggs and a little slippery, but with the magic (and a few pins and sticky tack) of Sugar Tart's food styling, a few more adjustments along the way (and a few hours), we had a dish of beautifully stacked stuffed dates!

I hadn't noticed this until now, but it looks like the magazine ran out of room on the page for the final date topper!  We were having so much fun and probably could of gone on all day but at some point, you have to go home :)
