Say that one five times fast. To make one of our favorite bite-sized treats even better, we added some crème fraîche to the mix to make them look like cute little Santa hats.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3/4 pound dates, pitted
  • 1/2 pound bacon
  • 1/3 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup crème fraîche

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Trim the tops of each date where the pit has been removed so that the top comes to at point (to resemble a triangle). Add the ricotta to a plastic bag and snip the end to make a pastry bag. Stuff each date with ricotta, then wrap a 1/2 slice of bacon around each. Secure with a toothpick. Roast the dates on their sides in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until the bacon is crisp. Remove from the oven and let cool. Add the crème fraîche to another plastic big with a trimmed corner. On a serving platter, pipe 25 small circles of crème fraîche (about the size of the fat end of each bacon-wrapped date). Place the bacon wrapped dates, pointed side up, on top of each circle. Pipe a small circle on the top of each date, so that they resemble Santa hats.
