Date Filled Fingers

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Servings: 40 little fingers

Ingredients

Dough

  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp dried yeast
  • 1 tbsp granulated white sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup warm water

Filling

  • 1 1/2 cup pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder optional

Instructions

Dough

  • Mix all dough ingredients by hand. Adjust the flour-liquid ratio if needed until you have a dough that comes together really well. It should not be sticky.
  • Cover and let it rest for 1 hour in a warm spot.

Filling

  • Place all filling ingredients in a saucepan on low heat. Mix well, try to break the dates and when filling becomes thick, turn off heat.

Assemble

  • When dough has proofed, place on a lightly floured surface and knead for few minutes. Let rest for another 10 mins.
  • Roll the dough into a rectangular shape (1-2 cm thick) then divide rectangle to smaller rectangles ~ 5 cm in width, each. Fill with date mixture and close the edges tightly. You’ll end up with long rolls.
  • Cut each roll to desired number of fingers, place in a greased pan and bake for 15-20 mins or until golden brown on top.
