This combination of dusky dates and tinted marzipan is a North African tradition.

Yield: 24 dates (serving size: 1 stuffed date)


24 Medjool dates (about 1 pound)
2 drops green food coloring (optional)
2/3 cup marzipan (almond paste)
2 teaspoons powdered sugar


Cut a lengthwise slit down the center, but not through, each date; remove seeds.

Sprinkle food coloring over marzipan, if desired; gently knead 4 to 5 times or until color is incorporated into marzipan. Divide marzipan mixture evenly among dates; stuff into slits. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
