Algerian Stuffed Dates

This combination of dusky dates and tinted marzipan is a North African tradition.

Yield 24 dates (serving size: 1 stuffed date)

  • 24 Medjool dates (about 1 pound)
  • 2 drops green food coloring (optional)
  • 2/3 cup marzipan (almond paste)
  • 2 teaspoons powdered sugar
  • Cut a lengthwise slit down the center, but not through, each date; remove seeds.
  • Sprinkle food coloring over marzipan, if desired; gently knead 4 to 5 times or until color is incorporated into marzipan. Divide marzipan mixture evenly among dates; stuff into slits. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
