I came across these on Lauren’s Latest and knew immediately that I had to make them. Not only did they look super delicious, but I also had all the ingredients on hand! Did you know that dates have tons of health benefits? I didn’t…so I googled it. Turns out dates have many essential vitamins. I think of that every time I grab one for dessert. It makes me feel a bit better about eating so many.
Dates are like natures candy! They’re incredibly sweet, and the cream cheese filling is the perfect touch for a nice summer dessert. These are a little on the rich side, but I was hooked on my first bite. Lauren used pitted dates, but I had to remove the pits from mine. It took almost no time to do this, so there’s no need to feel pressured into buying pitted dates. Buy your favorite! I like the medjool dates as they seem a bit sweeter compared to other types that I’ve tried.
I don’t really have much more to add other than you need to make these now!! Oh…did I forget to mention that these take less than twenty minutes to make!? Yeah, it’s as simple as slice, mix, and fill. There’s really no good reason to not make these.
