YIELD 36 dates
TIME About 20 minutes
You can assemble these a day in advance, but keep them covered in the refrigerator. Bake just before you're ready to serve them.
36 pitted dates
2 oz. Parmigiano-Reggiano, cut into 36 small chunks
18 pieces (6oz.) thinly sliced prosciutto, cut in half length-wise
Preheat oven to 375°.
Cut a slit into dates and stuff each with a small chunk of Parmigiano-Reggiano.
Wrap each date with a half slice of prosciutto and arrange on a baking sheet.
Bake dates until prosciutto is crisp, about 10 minutes; serve while hot.
