This combo is perfect together. A little sweet and a little savory always work together right?

These are great for a pre dinner snack or a non-traditional dessert. I added herbs to half and left the other half plain (goat cheese only). To be honest, I like the plain ones better.

Ingredients:

  • Dates (pitted)
  • Goat Cheese
  • Proscuitto
  • Honey
  • Cane Sugar
  • Herbs (OPTIONAL)

Directions:

  1. Pre-Heat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Pit Dates
  3. Spoon in goat cheese
  4. Close date and wrap proscuitto around the date
  5. Pierce with a toothpick
  6. Arrange dates on your cookie sheet
  7. Drizzle honey and sprinkle organic cane sugar
  8. Place the tray in the oven for 15 minutes
  9. Serve warm and Enjoy!

If you're wondering where to buy proscuitto, any large market will have it. I'm partial to the fresh Spanish proscuitto from the actual meat counter vs. the pre-packaged kind in the cooler, but both will work just fine.
