Coffee lovers might want to add an extra ingredient to the mascarpone filling: Mix in a half teaspoon instant espresso powder along with the cinnamon and sugar.

Cook's Notes

To make this Mediterranean-inspired dessert even easier to prepare, serve the dates whole with the mascarpone mixture on the side; your guests can spoon a bit onto their plates for spreading.
