I made some last night and thought I would share with you my own recipe Most recipes suggest to put sugar along with the dates, but I don't add sugar, dates are sweet enough!!
These were also a big hit when I had my catering service and was one of Ottawa's most famous Gelato store's Piccolo Grande's best seller!!!
