.thanksgiving recipes: sesame-date treat.

After a long week of sick babies, sick mama, and hard-working dada, I'm back with an easy and unique recipe!
I'm not quite sure what to label these: appetizer, dessert...I just don't know. But they're tasty!
Dates and tahini lend a very unique taste to these little bites.
I think they would be delicious for either before dinner or after dinner.
The only downside to this recipe is that these need to stay frozen. Otherwise they turn into an ooey-gooey mess. BUT, if you make them ahead of time, just pop them in the freezer. And you'll be good to go! (Maybe it would be a tasty morsel with a cup of after-dinner coffee).
