This is the best appetizer recipe ever! It's kind of funny because people will walk by and wonder what it is, then the people who have tried it will start raving, and about 15 minutes later it's all gone and everyone is trying to find out who made it so they can get the recipe. This beats bacon wrapped dates hands down and makes Deglet dates taste as good as Medjools.
Step 1: Step 1 Gather Your Ingredients
8 oz cream cheese
36 pitted dates
Step 2: Trick of the Dish
Cut the cream cheese into a 6x6 grid before you get started. they don't need to be exactly equal because you'll have some dates that are larger than others.
Stuff the dates with cream cheese. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Stick in the broiler for 5-7 minutes until the surface turns golden brown, and you are done. These taste really gourmet so it's okay to act like they were a lot more difficult to make than they are.
