Bacon Wrapped Dates or Figs

As promised, I did indeed make bacon wrapped dates (I thought they were figs originally...oops!) for Christmas and again a few nights later. Caution-these are addicting!

Dried dates or figs
pecan halves

1. Stuff each date with a pecan. (Depending on the size I sometimes had to cut the pecan in half to fit it in.)
2. Wrap a piece of bacon around the date. This is where is gets a little tricky. I used some kitchen shears to cut the bacon. There should be plenty of overlap when wrapping the bacon around the date, otherwise when you bake them the bacon will come undone.
3. Bake at 350 until bacon is crispy. Be sure to turn the pieces throughout the cooking time to make sure the bacon cooks evenly.
