VERY naughty Twissis - but totally divine! Made for aperitif snacks yesterday and wolfed down by the greedy people who came for drinks - I managed to fight them off and get one - they will NOT be invited again!! LOL! I made these exactly as stated and they turned out a dream......I had a brief accident with my piping bag - it burst - so I had to spoon the cheese spread on the biscuits in the end......nobody noticed! (They were too busy eating them!) A keeper which I will say is my own invention now.....unless they are Zaar members, in which case I will come clean! Many thanks for this super recipe - FT:-)

Though I am not really into dates, this is making a great weeknight snack for us. I did spread the cheese spread by hand, and the cheese mixture was great, and flavorful. Thanks for a great snack.

Yummy! Didn't know I liked dates, but now I do! I used too big of crackers, but the cheese has such a strong flavor it wasn't too bad to have extra neutral flavor. I also made some with green apples instead of dates. That worked great, too.
