10 dates 
10 nuts: almond, Brazil, pecan, or cashew Directions:



1. Place dates on plate. Put knife on a date lengthwise. Use your non-knife hand to make a bridge with your thumb and index finger over the knife down to the sides of the date to keep it from rolling.
2. Cut half-way through, enough to open the date. Open dates to check for pits. Remove any pits or stems.
3. Put one nut in each date. Close dates. Arrange dates on plate.
