    Bacon Wrapped Dates With Walnuts! These are extremely delicious and addictive and make a great party appetizer! Try a little peanut butter instead of the cream cheese or mix a little peanut butter into the cream cheese. Oh sooooo good!!

    Ingredients

    24 large moist, pitted dates
    12 slices bacon
    2 oz cream cheese or goat cheese, softened
    24 1/2 pieces of walnuts or whole pecans
    brown sugar

    Directions


    Pit dates carefully. Set aside.

    Halve the bacon slices crosswise.

    Put cream cheese into a pastry bag fitted with a round plain 1/4 inch tip. (or just place in a plastic bag and cut a small hole in the corner).

    Stuff each date cavity with 1 piece of nut.

    Pipe cheese into each stuffed date.

    Wrap 1 piece of bacon around the width of each date.

    Roll in brown sugar.

    Place dates on a foil lined pan and spray with non-stick oil, seam side down at lest 1/2-inch apart.

    Bake in upper third of preheated oven at 500^ until bacon is golden and crisp, about 7-9 minutes.

    Remove and set aside to cool briefly before serving. These are excellent cold too.
