Ingredients
  • 60g soft goats’ cheese
  • 50g light soft cheese
  • 20g walnuts, chopped
  • ¼tsp chopped thyme leaves, plus extra to serve
  • 12 Extra Special Medjoul dates
  • 100g Italian smoked prosciutto
Method
  • In a bowl, stir together the goats’ cheese (this can be swapped for soft blue cheese, if you like) and light soft cheese until smooth.

  • Stir in the chopped walnuts and chopped thyme leaves until combined, and season with freshly ground black pepper.

  • Carefully slice down the sides of dates and remove the stones. Use a teaspoon to fill each date with a little of the soft cheese and walnut mixture.

  • Take the prosciutto and cut each slice in half. Wrap a piece of prosciutto around each stuffed date, securing with a cocktail stick, if you like.

  • Cover and keep in the fridge until ready to serve sprinkled with more thyme leaves and freshly ground black pepper.
