These come from my Aunt Kathryn, who is always sending me great, not-too-complicated recipes to try. She always especially has delicious finger food. Our extended family gatherings are often at her house, and she served these cheese biscuits at our Christmas gift exchange a few years ago. I try to keep the ingredients for these on hand, as they come together pretty quickly. They also freeze well, so I usually freeze half the batch for a night when I need a before-dinner snack.

1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1/2 c sharp cheddar cheese
1 1/2 c all purpose flour
1/2 t cayenne pepper
1/2 t salt
1/4 c milk
1 8 ox package chopped dates
Preheat oven to 375 F.
Beat butter and cheese until well-blended. Mix in flour, salt,and pepper. Add milk. Stir until stiff dough forms. Wrap 1 T dough around 3-4 chopped dates. Cover completely and form into a cylinder or a ball.
Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake until golden, about fifteen minutes. Serve warm.
Note: If you want to freeze them, bake for about 12-13 minutes and then freeze. Bake for 2-3 minutes (straight from the freezer) to reheat. You can also make the dough up to one day ahead, and keep in the fridge until ready to bake.
