Make the dates up to a day ahead. Cover them with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to bake.


Combine goat cheese, walnuts, parsley, zest, and shallots for the filling; season with salt and pepper.

Fill dates using a #100 scoop (heaping 1 tsp.) measure. Wrap dates with halved prosciutto slices and secure with toothpicks; transfer to a baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap, and chill 30 minutes, or up to overnight.

Preheat oven to 375°.

Bake dates until cheese is bubbly and prosciutto is crisp, 15 minutes.


To easily fill the dates and ensure there’s enough filling, use a #100 scoop measure.


Wrap the dates with a halved slice of prosciutto. This helps enclose the filling and adds savory, salty flavor.
