Stuffed Dates

I really like this recipe because it is quick and easy and makes for either a nice dessert or hors d'oeuvre's to nibble at the beginning, before you and your guest sit for dinner. It is also very nice to serve with red wine.  Since it is quite heavy and strong it is best eaten when cold but I served them in the Australian Spring/Summer.


20 dates (or 3 per person)
1 pack of creamy gorgonzola cheese (if you find the gorgonzola and mascarpone cheese pre-mixed in the package that is also a good option for those who would like a milder gorgonzola cheese….if you have no luck finding this and you find blue cheese add that with a bit of Philadelphia cheese to soften the strength of the blue cheese.) 

Use dried dates, cut them in half and remove pits.
Once the dates are cut and the pits have been removed, fill each date with a small spoon of creamy Gorgonzola cheese.

Serve on a platter and they are ready.

( I recommend you serve these for your guest and spare yourselves the calories...LOL...but I mean it ; )

The combination of flavors explode in your mouth!!!! They are divine….
