  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Place pecans on a baking sheet and bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly toasted and fragrant. Cool. Raise oven temperature to 450 degrees F. Make a slit along top of each date. Cut the Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese into thin slivers. Stuff a pecan half and a sliver of cheese into each date. Quarter prosciutto slices lengthwise. Wrap each date with a strip of prosciutto. Place dates on a baking sheet; bake 6 minutes, or until prosciutto is crisp and cheese softens. Transfer dates to a plate and finish with a grinding of fresh pepper. Serve hot, warm, or at room temperature.
