This weekend we had a couple friends over and I had my mind set on making stuffed dates; but I wanted to try a new twist! I decided to try an inside-out stuffed date: chopped dried dates and pistachios on top of a crusty baguette, spread with Philadelphia Cream Cheese and drizzled with honey—they were ah-mazing. Ladies and gentleman, I give you the stuffed date crostini!
