How to Make Dates Appetizer

by Kathleen Heady


I made these appetizer for Christmas Eve for my family dinner this last year.  I had tried these dates at a Christmas party the year before and they were so delicious, I always wanted to make them. So this year I chose to make appetizers for the family dinner and remembered those dates from awhile back and made them.

Besides their Simple to make and oh so good! I couldn’t stop eating the dates by the way prior to baking because they were that delicious.  I’m including two options in my step-by-step recipe. One is No Bake steps 1-2-3 and the other includes Bake steps 4-5.

I’d love to here how you made your dates bake or no bake.  And, how was it?



Philadelphia Cream Cheese

Medjool Dates


Bacon **(optional)**



Date Options:

  • No Bake Recipe steps 1-2-3 skip 4-5.
  • Bake Recipe steps  1-2-3-4-5


Steps 1-2-3

Step 1:

Cut the Medjool dates in half and remove the fig seed.

Step 2:

Get the butte knife and add the cream to each Medjool Date.

Step 3:

Add Pistachios



Baking Steps 4-5

Step 4:

Wrap bacon around each Medjool. **(optional)**

Step 5:

Turn oven on to 375 degrees. Bake dates for 12-15 minutes. Let cool.

Bon Appetite
