We love these and so do my guests. I took them to an Allrecipes party yesterday and they inhaled them. Actually, I will have to make them again today just to put a pic on this great recipe. I used Asiago cheese because that is what my local Costco had. I wrapped them in a half slice of Costco precooked bacon and baked as directed which makes it even easier. Watch them for burning though :)I also bought the big tub of pitted dates at Costco to make a bunch for the holidays. Thanks for sharing this much appreciated and simple appetizer.
