Date, Rum and Ricotta Strudels

Date, Rum and Ricotta Strudels

Substitute the rum with another spirit or liqueur if desired. Whisky, brandy, coffee and hazelnut all go well with dates. The date paste can be made several days in advance. Store covered in the fridge, adding the almonds to the paste when assembling the pastries.
