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!
- "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.
- Place a pecan over the filling.
- Close the date, shaping it back into its original shape.
- Eat and enjoy!
These are also part of our holiday traditions! We also roll them in sugar before serving. Thanks!
Nice combination of flavors.
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!
