  • 12 large soft Medjool dates sliced lengthwise halfway through & pitted
  • 1 oz blue cheese, room temperature
  • 1 oz whipped cream cheese, room temperature
  • 12 whole toasted almonds
  • balsamic reduction
  1. Before you start, make sure the cheeses are at room temperature, so it mixes easy. Let it sit for an house on the countertop.

  2. In a small bowl, stir together blue cheese and cream cheese until well combined. Using a piping bag or a small spoon, stuff the pitted dates with cheese mixture. Top with one toasted almond each and drizzle with balsamic reduction. 

  3. Serve with cocktails. Or enjoy on their own.
