Recipe: Mascarpone Stuffed Dates

Recipe - Mascarpone Stuffed Dates
  • 6 Dates
  • 6 Tablespoon of Mascarpone
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Chives, Chervil or even minced Candied Orange Peel for Garnish
  1. Using a pairing knife, cut half way through the date, from tip to tip.
  2. Pinch the ends of the date, so it opens up and you can easily remove the seed.
  3. Prepare piping tip in bag and fill with mascarpone.
  4. Fill dates from tip to tip with about 1 Tablespoon of Mascarpone per date.
  5. Snip chives into ½ inch pieces.
  6. Place chives on top of mascarpone, in an ‘X’ for garnish.
Refrigerate until about 1 hour before you plan to serve, then remove and let come to room temperature.

Other ideas for serving this?
  • Use a piping tip to change the shape of the mascarpone in the date.
  • De-seed dates, place in oven at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Remove and let cool enough for handling. Fill with mascarpone and serve slightly warm.
  • Great as a petit four or on a cheese platter.
