This is another repost of an "invisible" post I made for Thanksgiving.
This recipe is quick and easy and is for those of you looking for alternative to baking pies. They are super yummy with the carmelized date and roasted pecan. You could even add a little cinnamon if you like.
fresh dates, pits removed
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 8x8 pan. Slice into your dates lenghtwise, being careful not to slice all the way through. Then place a whole pecan in the slit you made and place it in your prepared pan. When your pan is full or you have made the amount you need place the pan in the oven and bake for about 10 minutes. Again it depends on your oven. It may take a little longer, what you are looking for is for the dates to carmelize a bit and the pecan to get a little toasted. Cool slightly and enjoy! This are a yummy treat just be careful you don't eat to many!
