Finely chop the pistachios best with a chopping knife, chop the dates. Put a pot with 5-6 tablespoons of water, add the dates and mix well. Bring to a boil over moderate heat and simmer everything for about 5 minutes, until the dates are soft. Meanwhile, stir repeatedly. Then remove from heat and let the mixture cool. In the meantime, toast the chopped pistachios briefly in a coated pan without fat until they develop their full aroma. Put the pistachios into a bowl, add the dates, rose water and cinnamon and knead into a smooth mixture. Form into small balls. Put very finely chopped pistachios, coconut flakes and/or powdered sugar in a small bowl and roll the confectionery in them.
