medjool date with manchego cheese & walnut~ wrapped in prosciutto

Wednesday, May 4, 2011


This is the most decadent little combo. {adapted by a recipe I learned at one of Diane Phillips's fabulous classes}
1 package of medjool dates {Trader Joe's has them now... I think there are about 20 in a pack}
10 walnuts cut in half long ways
20 cut pieces of manchego cheese {3/4" long}
I package of prosciutto {cut the pieces in half long ways... if you have extra prosciutto you can add to the ones that might not have gotten enough}

Pre-heat your oven for 375.
First you will need to do the dirty job of taking all the pits out. There is no easy way to do this, just kind of squeeze them out and then take your fingers and pull. Where the pit once was insert the walnut and cheese. Then take the long piece of prosciutto and wrap the entire date. Repeat for all 20. Cook for about 10-15 minutes keep an eye on them as every oven is different and you don't want them to burn.
If you want to dress them up a bit tie a little twine or ribbon around your toothpicks...



  1. yum. I have had something like this at a tapas bar, but I might give it a go myself now

  2. This looks so good! I needed a new idea for an appetizer for our Friday night get togethers on the bluff...just in time...thank you!!

  3. yum! I do something very similar but with a slivered almond and goat cheese (still with the prosciutto or bacon, of course!) and people go crazy for it!

  4. YUMMY!! We need to make these and pop a bottle of Pinot Gris once that baby arrives:)

  5. I love that, I've had them in the before and I must say I couldn't have just one. They're amazing.

  6. these sound amazing! i always stuff mine with an almond and parmigiano reggiano then wrap in bacon, but this sounds better!

  7. Oh my goodness. I was already starving; now I'm drooling!

  8. I'm so glad you posted this! Art and his friend couldn't get enough of them at our felting party. I think I'll surprise him with these tasty treats soon.

  9. looks delicious and stylish! yummy :-)

  10. Yum. My mother makes these and I eat them like they are popcorn.

  11. These kicked my butt at Karin's felting party! I ate quite a few of them but not as much as Art that's for sure. :)

  12. One of my favorites. It is too late to be this hungry.
