Spicy Date in a Blanket

The other night I went to ladies night out at one of my daughters friends, parents home; and I  had a great time! This is a great idea everyone brings either a appetizer, dinner item, dessert or drink. There were about 30- 40 Moms there from Kindergarten to 4th or 5th grade. It was so much fun. The best part is you are not allowed to talk to the Moms that you know! You are only allowed to speak to people in other grades or classes that you do not know.
 My daughter has been going to the same school since kindergarten, however, I still do not know all 250+ families who attend the school and it was fun to meet parents who had kids in other grades. A lot of the Moms at my daughter school know that I have the cooking underwriter website. So they always ask if I will create something fun to bring to"Ladies Night Out". So I created spicy dates in a blanket with jalapeno jack cheese a spicy sweet appetizer.

Spicy Date in a blanket Ingredients:
36 Medjool Dates pits removed
36 small pieces of jalapeno Monterrey Jack Cheese
1 tub of Gluten Free Pizza Dough by Pillsbury rolled out and cut in strips

Take dates and remove pits slice down the center.

Insert spicy jalapeno Monterrey jack cheese.

Next roll pizza strip around date making an x in center.

Bake at 350 degrees on a silpat for 10 min.

Bon Appetite,
