...prosciutto wrapped dates...

Happy Monday!  Did you have a good weekend?  Let's hope so.  To carry on the enjoyment that comes with weekends, why not make up some of these this week and serve them as an appetizer.  Surprise yourself, or whoever else you're cooking for with this simple and delicious start to any meal.

I made them from dates I got at the famers market in Santa Barbara, some Gorgonzola, and thin sliced prosciutto.

Simply cut the dates in half, remove the pit, stuff them with some cheese, and wrap with some prosciutto.  Bake at about 375 for 7-10 minutes, checking for melted cheese and crispy skins.

I drizzled on some honey to go the extra step which added a touch more sweetness.  Enjoy!
