Cream Cheese, softened
Whole Dates, pits removed
Bacon, sliced long enough to wrap around the middle of the date. (we used thick cut maple and pepper bacon)
Preheat oven to 375. Stuff softened cream cheese into the center of the date by using a pastry bag or plastic Ziploc bag with the tip cut off. Wrap stuffed date in bacon strip and fasten with toothpick. Bake for 15 minutes or until bacon is thoroughly cooked.
Note: These tasty appetizers can be made a head of time and then baked as needed.
