Scottish Recipes: Marzipan Dates

This is another recipe which originated in Dundee where almonds (the basis of marzipan) were imported. These sweeties (candies) are simple to make and do not involve any cooking at all!

Recipe Ingredients:

8oz whole dates from which the stones have been removed.
8oz marzipan
4oz caster (fine granulated) sugar

Preparation Method:

Knead the marzipan until it is warm and soft. Take a small piece of marzipan (the amount will vary on your liking for marzipan!) and shape it into a roll slightly shorter than the length of the dates. Open the date with a knife, insert the marzipan and close over again. Roll the filled date in the caster sugar and lay it on a separate plate. Repeat until the marzipan is finished. Place the Marzipan Dates in small paper cases and store in an airtight container.
