Stilton Date Mini Cakes
3/4 cup dates finely chopped
2½ tbsp. dry sherry
3/4 cup Stilton cheese (in our Deli) crumbled, softened
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 cup light sour cream
1 egg
1 cup flour
3/4 cup polenta uncooked
2 tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1 tbsp. fresh chervil or 1 tsp. dried herbes de Provence finely chopped
Coarse sea salt (optional)

Prep: 20 minutes Cook: about 15 minutes
Makes: about 44

1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line 44 mini muffin cups with paper liners. Spray paper liners with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Stir together dates and sherry in a microwave-safe bowl; cook, covered, on HIGH for 1 minute. Set aside to cool.
3. Beat together cheese and oil in the large bowl of an electric mixer. (Mixture will stay lumpy.) Beat in sour cream and egg. Stir in remaining ingredients including reserved dates with a wooden spoon until just combined.
4. Spoon batter into prepared mini muffin cups, filling about 2/3 full. Sprinkle with a pinch of coarse sea salt, if you like. Bake for about 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and tops are lightly browned.
