Again, why stress over appetizers when this simple, yummy snack is here to save the day? From America's Test Kitchen


  1. Toast walnuts in a small skillet over medium heat for about 5 minutes, or until fragrant, but not browned.
  2. Slit dates lengthwise, but do not cut all the way through.
  3. Cut Parmesan into thin shards, about the length of the date.
  4. Stuff a shard of cheese and a walnut half into each date.

I was planning to make & share these at a neighborhood get-together, but somehow a majority of them disappeared beforehand & I decided they wouldn't be missed! Absolutely loved these little tasties, & I plan to include them on my finger food counter the next time I host one of my monthly meetings! Definitely a keeper recipe! Thanks for sharing it!

Excellent quick appetizer. Three different flavors all packed into a little bite. Sweet, sharp and nutty. You can only eat a few of these guys, they are very rich. I cut the walnut halves into half. They fit into the dates better. I also used the potato peeler to shave of the slices of cheese. Made this for a family gathering. Everyone who tried them gave two thumbs up. Thanks kiwidutch for posting.
