Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Mix cream cheese and Gorgonzola cheese together in a bowl.

  • Cut a slit into each date so they can be spread flat. Spread cheese mixture into each date; top with a walnut piece.

Cook's Note:

You can put the cheese mixture into a zip-type bag, cut a hole in one corner, and squeeze mixture into the date. I feel you lose too much cheese in the bag doing it this way.

These are delicious! Typically served in Italy around the holidays this is similar to "Torta gorgonzola mascarpone e noci". The cream cheese adds a nice twist to the flavor. Stuffing the mixture inside a date is simply genius. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

I REALLY liked these. Give me a sweet and salty combination any day! I warmed the gorgonzola with the softened cream cheese in the microwave for a few seconds before mixing it together put it in a piping bag with a tip wide enough for the gorgonzola cheese crumbles to pass through and piped the mixture into each date. I also toasted the walnut pieces. I think serving these warmed or at least room temperature is key. I also want to try these with crumbled bacon added to the cheese mixture. Read More
