Let's Make Dates Stuffed With Goat Cheese!

When you hear the biblical verse, "a land flowing with milk and honey" (Exodus 3:8), the honey is actually date honey. This biblical food is grown in the Holy Land - which is why it's so popular in Israeli dishes. Dates taste great in many recipes, but are especially delicious when stuffed with goat cheese! Try this perfect summer snack and share with friends.


20 Medjool or other soft, dark dates

5 oz goat cheese

fleur de sel or other flaky sea salt


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Layer a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Slice dates open lengthwise, remove pit, and place on baking sheet. Sprinkle each date with a small pinch of salt. Stuff each date with one teaspoon of goat cheese, and sprinkle another small pinch of salt overtop.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, until dates are fragrant and tender and goat cheese has softened considerably. If desired, sprinkle another pinch of salt over all the dates. Serve immediately.
