Another super simple version of date desserts. Just drizzle with Butterscotch sauce, as dates and butterscotch pair super well together.
The super dates!
- 50 phyllo squares (recipe on this link)
- 225g dates, pitted & processed in a food processor
- 1 tsp orange blossom water
- 1 tsp melted butter
- 1 tsp rose water (optional)
- Cardamom powder (optional)
- pinch ground cloves optional
- Icing Sugar for dusting
To prepare the date filling
Mix dates, blossom water/ rose water, spices if using until well incorporated. Shape the mixture into little cylinders. do not roll too thin.
To Roll the sheets
Place 1 date cylinder on the phyllo sheet. tuck in the sides of the sheet, and roll into a spring roll. Repeat until all the quantity is finished.
If you are going to freeze the prepared rolls, then place them separated with wax paper, in an airtight freezer-safe container. Prepared date rolls can be frozen up to 6 months.
You can deep fry the rolls until golden, or what I do is brush them with butter and bake them in 450F-220C oven until golden, turning once.
Let cool for a minute, place on serving platter and dust lightly with Icing Sugar, or serve next to caramel sauce/butterscotch sauce.
