Dates are traditionally eaten as the first food when breaking the fast during Ramadan. Stuffed with nuts, soft cheese, and dried fruit, dates provide a sweet complement to savory dishes during autumn and winter holiday dinners.

  • 4 ounces mascarpone cheese 
  • 2 tablespoons finely-snipped fresh rosemary 
  • ¾ pound (about 24) pitted fresh Medjool dates 
  • ½ cup (about 1½ ounces) coarsely-chopped walnuts
  • Fresh rosemary, for garnish


  1. Combine mascarpone cheese and rosemary in a small bowl, incorporating well. Cover. Refrigerate for about 1 hour for flavors to blend. 
  2. Slit the dates along one side. Stuff each date with about 1 teaspoon mascarpone cheese mixture, leaving the slit slightly open to expose the cheese mixture. 
  3. Dip the cheese-stuffed dates in the walnuts along the slit, allowing the walnuts to coat the cheese mixture.
  4. Garnish with rosemary leaves, if desired.
  5. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve.
