This is a really easy and good recipe, the bad thing is that they are eaten very fast.
But I loved them. Small cakes with dates and pistachios and with espresso syrup. For a cup of tea or coffee.
For any time.
We are already in November. As it happened this year.
Soon we have to start with the Christmas recipes, but I love it.
I love Christmas.
I hope you enjoy this recipe.
A hug for everyone
