1 (8 oz) package of pitted dates
1 (16 oz) package of original bacon (not the thick cut - I like to use the Hormel brand)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Position oven rack in the center of the oven. Cover a cookie sheet with tin foil, and set aside.
2. Cut each slice of bacon into thirds. Roll each date in a piece of bacon, place seam-side down on the baking sheet, and pierce with a toothpick (to hold it in place). Repeat until all the dates are wrapped in bacon.
3. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until crisp. Let cool for 10-15 minutes before serving. These are great served at room temperature too and travel really well!
