Alice's comment - PersonalCooker

Stuffed dates are a food that lends itself to both opening and closing a meal. They are products rich in simple sugars, with a moderate portion of lipids (mainly polyunsaturated) and proteins. The overall energy intake is quite high.
Cholesterol is not excessive, while fiber is present in good quantities. Stuffed dates are not suitable for diet against overweight or type 2 diabetes mellitus. The average portion corresponds to about 35-45g (90-115kcal).


Stuffed dates

Tired of the usual date? Do you want to reward yourself with a sin of gluttony at Christmas? So all you have to do is prepare the stuffed dates with Mascarpone Santa Lucia.

With a filling based on Mascarpone Santa Lucia, cinnamon and walnuts you can create excellent dates

stuffed to serve asChristmas caketo please all guests and delight their palates. The kernelof walnut, in fact, it sinks into the mascarpone giving the date that set of crunchiness and softness that will leave you speechless. Protagonist of Christmas holidays, the date is perfect to be served both at the end of lunch or dinner, at Christmas or New Year, and at the beginning, as delicious starter.

The ingredients are few and easy to find, most likely you will already have them available in your refrigerator at Christmas time.

You can cut the date in two and, after removing the stone, create stuffed boats or do not make a clean cut but only an incision, so that the stone can be removed, and thus make tasty stuffed sandwiches.

However you want to serve your dates with mascarpone and walnuts, the most important thing is to have plenty of filling so that every bite is an explosion of flavor and creaminess.


Coffee with chocolate

For the truth the title is a bit misleading, I see it now. In fact, the chocolate is outside and not in the filling, but so be it, it's done now. The story is that I was looking for a chocolate recipe to participate in one of the competitions that I am entered in. Leafing through one of my books (Chocolate - Ed. Il Viaggiatore, the cover is here, the column. Who knows when I'll finish it) on the subject, I came across the recipe for these dates. This fruit, prepared with a filling of almond paste, has now become a usual winter presence in my house, but I had never had the idea of ​​replacing almonds with pistachios. Their color, this bright green, was a real feast for the eyes. A quick reasoning: I had the ingredients, both pistachios, the last remnants of Christmas sweet preparations, and dates, so what?
So here they are. As usual, I made some variations, based on my taste and the result was satisfying and delicate, vaguely Middle Eastern looking dates, suitable for a gift idea for greedy friends. The only drawback: at the last minute I realized that I had finished the dark chocolate by now the pistachio paste was ready. I folded on the gianduia. Good, however I must confess that. a nice extra-dark fondant would have been even better!

Ingrediants:
20 dates
50 grams of unsalted pistachios (not those used as an aperitif!)
50 grams of powdered sugar
25 grams of granulated sugar
50 grams of chocolate (dark or gianduia or white if you want a nice color contrast)
a few drops of vanilla essence (optional)
a teaspoon of rum
half a teaspoon of glucose (or delicate honey such as acacia or wildflower)

Execution:
blanch the pistachios for a couple of minutes, drain and remove the outer skin.

Finely chop them in a mixer together with the granulated sugar.

Pitted the dates and melt the chocolate in a double boiler.

Prepare the pasta by mixing the pistachio flour with the icing sugar, the vanilla flavor, the rum and the glucose or honey. The dough must be quite firm, so do not exceed with the liqueur but add it little by little.

Divide the dough into twenty pieces, shape them into a cylinder and insert them one by one into the hollow of the dates.

Dip the lower part of the fruit in melted chocolate, let it set on parchment paper and finish, if you like, "polishing" the upper part with a brush of honey and sprinkling with icing sugar. Place in baking cups and serve.


Stuffed dates

Stuffed dates are the perfect treat or the perfect snack to enjoy during the holidays. I remember that among the Christmas desserts, at my grandmother's house, there was never a shortage of dates stuffed with mascarpone and walnuts. A dessert that makes me live those memories to which I am particularly attached.

Although I loved this dessert, I have always considered it a little bit heavy. In fact, this delicious fruit possesses a high satiating power besides being very sweet, but to make it much heavier and less digestible is the mascarpone, which I have never loved. So why not try to lighten them up a bit & # 8217?

I decided to replace the philadelphia with mascarpone, a not very strange modification, and to sweeten it a little, I used cinnamon instead of icing sugar. An extra touch that makes this dessert even more Christmas.

But which dates to use?

The quality of the dates is very important to make a perfect Christmas cake, avoid taking those tiny, super dry dates that you find in the typical polystyrene tray of the supermarket. To make them, I use Medjoul dates, which I find in the fruit counter at the supermarket, originating from North Africa. They are quite large in size compared to other types of dates on the market and have a sweet and juicy flavor. Today also grown in Sicily. Medjoul natural dates have multiple beneficial properties. They are rich in fiber (which is why they have a high satiating power), potassium and magnesium. In addition, fibers are essential in our diet because they allow us to regulate the activity of the intestine. Potassium, on the other hand, increases muscle concentration.

Among the many properties of dates, there is that of helping to lower the levels of cholesterol.

But how many calories do dates have?

Although dates are very caloric, they have little fat and can also be eaten on a diet. They are recommended during diets energy, in particular to sportsmen or people who are undergoing rehabilitation, while consuming dates it is not recommended for those who follow a low-calorie diet. Despite everything, it will be necessary not to overdo it.

My Persian cuisine

I too take Yalba's wishes! Shoreh, this is a great party. Too bad that the green melon has become impossible to find. But listen, is the recipe you propose us traditional or did you invent it yourself? And can't you write a poem by Hafez? Happy sunny year.

I was lost with my gaze towards the sea
I was lost with my gaze on the horizon,
everything and everything looked the same
then I discovered a rose in a corner of the world,
I discovered its colors and its desperation
to be imprisoned among the thorns
I didn't catch it but I protected it with my hands,
I have not caught her but with her I have shared the scent and the thorns all of them.

Dear Pellegrina I found one of Hafez's poems on the internet (above) translated into Italian.
this recipe is exactly from Saudi Arabia and in the kitchen even we simply friamo the dates with the nuts which are very good. But since we are also close to Christmas I wanted to make them with chopped coconut to remember the Christmas snow which is also my birthday.
I sincerely wish you happy holidays Merry Christmas and happy 2015 with all the Inshallah family. A warm greeting. Shoreh

Thanks Shoreh I was very pleased to discover this poet. Dates drive me crazy in any form and your gimmick of making them into a Christmas tree is really very subtle. I made your pomegranate pumpkin for my mom who loved it. If your birthday is December 25th, mine is December 31st! What a coincidence to be born so close! Happy new Year to you too.

Dear Pellegrina then we are both Capricorns! I hope you had a good time on your birthday and all the holidays. A warm hug from Shoreh and again Happy New Year :)

Hello Shoreh, many happy birthdays, how nice the rite of this special party and poetry too)! This recipe is to be copied on the fly to dispose of all the dried fruit that abounds on the tables in this period. Bye bye Luisa

Hello dear Luisa I hope you have had a good time all the holidays. I wish you a Happy New Year with lots of health and serenity Inshallah. Thanks and a hug to you my dear :)
