  • Place cream cheese and bacon in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 15 to 20 sec. or until cream cheese is softened. Stir until well blended.
  • Cut each date lengthwise in half, being careful to not cut through to opposite side of each date; pinch ends to open slightly. Fill evenly with cream cheese mixture.
  • Top each with pecan half.

Special Equipment Needed

How to Toast Nuts

Toasting nuts adds crunch and intensifies their flavor. To toast nuts in the oven, spread nuts in single layer in shallow baking pan. Bake at 350°F for 8 to 10 min. or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. To toast nuts on the stovetop, place nuts in ungreased skillet. Cook on medium heat until golden brown, stirring frequently. To toast nuts in the microwave, place up to 1 cup of nuts in a microwaveable shallow dish. Microwave on HIGH until fragrant and crisp, stirring every 30 sec.

Serving Suggestion

These stuffed dates make a great addition to a fruit and cheese plattter.

Special Extra

Instead of stuffing the dates yourself, let your guests stuff them! Spoon the prepared spread into a serving bowl. Then prepare the date "shells," place on serving plate and let your guests stuff the dates themselves. Or for added color, spoon the prepared spread into hollowed-out bell pepper shells instead of the serving bowl.
