This is a recipe that my mother makes as a quick appetizer for special occasions. It may seem like an odd combination of flavors at first, but trust me, these can be addictive!


  1. "Butterfly"the dates, making sure that they are still attached along one side Spread the dates open and fill with a generous amount of cream cheese.
  2. Place a pecan over the filling.
  3. Close the date, shaping it back into its original shape.
  4. Eat and enjoy!

These are also part of our holiday traditions! We also roll them in sugar before serving. Thanks!

These are so yummy! I remember my grandmother making them just like this except she would roll them in toasted coconut for a little pizzaz and they aren't so sticky on your fingers when you pick them up!
