How to make it
- Spice Mix:
- In a small pan, toast the spices until fragrant.
- Spiced Marscapone:
- Combine the ingredients and beat the Mascarpone until it is slightly thickened and lightly peaked. Using a pastry bag (or you can cut one corner of a plastic sandwich bag), pipe the cheese into the halved and pitted dates. I garnished mine with honey roasted almonds.
- Note: the cheese mixture can be made up to two days ahead, but should not be piped into the dates until the day they will be served.
