- 16 smoked almonds
- 8 thick slices uncooked applewood-smoked bacon, sliced in half and then cut again crosswise

DIRECTIONS FOR DATES
This recipe has only a few steps, so it can easily be divided in half. One person do step 1 and the other person do step 2. Both do step 3 together.
Step 1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Step 2: Cut a slit in each date. Place almonds inside slits. Press together the dates to close slits. Wrap each date with a piece of bacon.
Step 3: Line a shallow baking pan with aluminum foil. Add a roasting rack; place the dates on rack. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes or until bacon is crisp.
Step 4: Serve immediately with toothpicks. Dates will be hot inside so be careful not to burn yourself!
