How to Make It
Slit dates lengthwise down 1 side and remove pits. Squeeze fruit from ends to open slits, and fill equally with cheese. Press dates to close around cheese. Wrap a piece of bacon around each date, securing with a toothpick. Place dates in a 10- by 15-inch pan.
Bake in a 450° oven until bacon is well browned, about 10 minutes (about 6 minutes in a convection oven); after about 4 minutes, use a wide spatula to ease dates loose from pan and turn over.
