Mascarpone Stuffed Dates ready for oven

Mascarpone Stuffed Dates with Maple Drizzle

This clean-eating date dessert reminds me of one of my favorite southern treats, decadent pecan pie. The flavors are a heavenly blend, very rich and sweet with a melt-in-your-mouth texture.

  • ¼ cup finely chopped pecans 
  • 24 Medjool Dates pitted 
  • 6 oz Mascarpone cheese
  • 2 tbsp Grade A Dark Amber Maple Syrup


  • Turn on oven broiler and move oven rack to the top position.  
  • Slice dates lengthwise to remove pit and create an opening for the filling.  Stuff dates with mascarpone cheese and sprinkle with finely chopped pecan crumbs.  
  • Place on parchment-lined baking sheet and drizzle with maple syrup. 
  • Broil 3 minutes or until lightly golden. Watch carefully so they do not burn! Allow to cool, slightly and enjoy warm or room temperature.  
  • Store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
