1 pound dates
1 pack wonton wrappers
Zest of 2 oranges, finely chopped
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, chopped
into slivers
Green and red food coloring
Egg white

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine dates and orange zest and grind or chop finely to form a paste.

Take 1/2 teaspoon of date and orange mixture and roll into balls.  Make a
small indentation in each ball and insert a sliver of Parmesan cheese then press
ball together to cover the cheese.

Moisten the top edge of a wonton wrapper with water.  Place a ball of date
mixture in the center of the bottom edge of the wonton wrapper and roll up to
form a tube.  Press the moistened edge to seal.  Pinch each side of the wrapper,
either side of the filling to form a cracker shape.

Mix a few drops of food coloring with beaten egg white and brush over the
cracker to decorate.

Bake for 10 minutes.  Cool n a wire rack then store in an air-tight container.  
Makes approximately 4 dozen.
