The Superbowl is over, but apparently the Superbowl appetizer posts aren’t. I’ve made these twice now, once for New Years, once for the Superbowl, and they’re great. Actually, I must admit: I came up with the idea, but my friend’s 15 year old daughter Mary made them. And did a great job!
First you start by making the filling. Take a small container of mascarpone and scoop it into a bowl. Mix in the zest of an orange, half of the juice of the orange, and a teaspoon of ground cardamom.
Split open a date, and spoon a little of the filling into it.
