Ingredients:  
1 pound (about 12-13 slices) bacon, preferably thick-cut
25 Medjool dates
1/3 cup ricotta cheese

Special Equipment: toothpicks, a bamboo skewer for removing pits =)

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 450.

Cut bacon in half lengthwise to make twice as many slices. Set aside. To remove the pits from the dates, cut the tips off each end of the dates and insert the flat end of the skewer until it pushes the pit out of the date. Repeat with remaining dates.

Place ricotta in the bottom corder of a strong plastic bag and seal tightly. Use scissors to cut a small hole in the tip of the 1 of the corners. Now use the bag like a piping bag to fill the dates with the cheese.

Wrap the ricotta stuffed dates with a slice of bacon and secure with a toothpick through the belly of the date. Arrange all the prepared dates on the parchment-lined baking sheet, allowing at least a little space between each one for good browning. Roast for 15-20 minutes or until bacon is browned and crispy. Remove from the baking sheet and gently remove toothpicks. Serve immediately.
