Posted for the Zaar World Tour 2006-Algeria.From the "Best of International Cooking" cookbook. I have not had the opportunity to try this recipe yet. UPDATE--I am posting this suggestion from a reviewer for making the preparation much easier: pulse the almonds and sugar in a food processor, then pulse in the cornstarch and whole pitted dates. The dates chop up perfectly and the ground almonds/sugar/corn starch keeps the date pieces from sticking to each other.
