Prosciutto Wrapped Dates

**found in Food And Wine Magazine, September 2011 issue

Oh how I love thee!  I live to go to special occasions and parties in hopes they will have this appetizer!  They are just sooo good!! They have something similar to this receipe at Cafeteria

3/4 cup (6 ounces) goat cheese
1 tbsp. minced shallots
1 tbsp. chopped fresh thyme
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
24 whole pitted dates
6 thin slices prosciutto

1. Preheat oven to 350degrees
2. Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring with a fork.  Slice dates lengthwise, cutting to, but not through, other side.  Open dates; place 1 rounded teaspoon cheese mixture into each date.  Cut 1 prosciutto slice in half lengthwise and then crosswise to make 4 equal pieces.  Repeat procedure with remaining prosciutto to form 24 pieces.  Wrap each date with 1 prosciutto piece; place dates on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes or until filling is thoroughly heated.  Serve immediately.  Yield: 20 servings (serving size: 2 dates)
