Baked Dates filled with Cream Cheese Topped with Apricots and Honey

This appetizer is a simple, elegant dish that’s perfect for parties. Six ingredients, a little preparation, and you’re ready to impress.

Note: You can also bake these at 250*F for 15-20 minutes, so the dates are warm, the cheese is gooey and soft. Drizzle the honey after you pull them from the oven.

Ingredients:

12 dates; pitted and cut in half

1-2 ounces cream cheese

1-2 tbsp. honey

3 tbsp. pecans, chopped

2 tbsp. dried apricots; small dice
