These were very good! I couldn't find pitted dates, so bought some nice Medjool (?) dates, sliced them open, removed the pit, and stuffed with goat cheese (I don't care for blue cheese). I wrapped them with applewood smoked bacon, secured with a toothpick, and then put them on a rack in a pan and baked. Mine took longer than the 40 minutes...more like 45 I think, but ovens vary, so watch them carefully. I did not have any problem with cheese leaking out like some others mentioned. I tried one soon after removing them from the oven, but I actually liked them better after they had cooled. I even tried one straight out of the fridge this morning, and it was good! I will definitely make these again. Thanks!
