This recipe has a great taste and the pastry is incredibly easy to work with. I don't know that I would have thought to use rosemary with dates, but the flavor was sublime. I put these out at a brunch, and at first nobody was eating them. Needless to say, I felt a little self conscious. Then it dawned on me: People thought they were wrapped cocktail franks that had been overcooked! Once everybody found out what they actually were, they started to disappear! Thanks for posting, Julia.
