- 12 dates, pitted
- 2 ounces semifirm blue cheese, preferably Gorgonzola piccante or Spanish Valdeon
- 1 tablespoon sliced almonds, toasted
- Honey, for drizzling
Using a sharp paring knife, cut a slit into each date (remove pits, if needed); stuff with blue cheese. Arrange on a serving platter and sprinkle the almonds on top. Drizzle with honey.
