Stunning appetiser, perfect balance of sweet and sour! I did not add nuts to the cheese, just popped them on the top as on the picture. Needed more dates (depends on the size of them), 32, and matching number of the nuts.
I made these for my Christmas party this year. They were a hit. I used roasted seasoned pecans (little spicy) for a little extra flavor. I had just a few left over--just chopped em up and put them on a salad.
Sweet and savory! you cannot go wrong. Who ever developed this recipe is brilliant. Taking 2 ingredients ie ( blue cheese and dates) that most people are not to crazy about and putting them together to make these delectable babies! I loved them and so did my guest. They are splendid with red wine. stop thinking about it and just make em already.
Wow!! I made these this evening as part of a finger food, nibbles party. I hade my sister, hubby and niece all say what a combination of flavours, that is going to be gross. No way!! once they all tried it they said I never thought that would work but that is truly delicious. All my guests, that loved dates, have praised this combo all the way. This to me is a truly unique way to serve dates but totally delicious. What can I say these flavours just work and work well..I even wondered how this would turn out myself, but it is truly inspried, thanks for sharing such a fab recipe.. :)
I followed the recipe to the letter and they turned out great. I cut the dates in half as I thought that they were too big to eat and hold a glass of wine. The best presentation I could come up with was an egg plate. Very easy to make with clear directions. Thanks for sharing JB!!
