PROSCIUTTO WRAPPED PARMESAN PECAN DATES

(from Prosciutto Recipes)

Makes 24

24 Pecan Halves

24 Large pitted dates

2 ounces fresh Parmigianno Reggiano Cheese

4 ounces Prosciutto, sliced thin

Freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Place the pecan halves on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until the pecans are lightly toasted and very fragrant.  Cool.

Raise the temperature in the oven to 425 degrees.

Make a slit along the top of each date.

Cut the parmesan cheese into thin slivers.

Stuff a parmesan sliver and a pecan into each date.

Quarter each slice of prosciutto into 4 long slices.  Wrap each date with a strip of the prosciutto.

Place the dates on a baking sheet and bake for 5-6 minutes until the prosciutto is crisp and the Parmesan softens.

Transfer dates to a plate and finish them with a fresh grind of black pepper.  Serve warm or at room temperature.
