For the Love of Figs


I admit it, I love fresh figs, anytime the market has them I bring them home. Yesterday I noticed I had a sheet of puff pastry in the freezer, and I still had a few figs left. So…. I just HAD to use the puff pastry, I’d hate for it to get freezer burnt!

For the wrapped figs I cut a small slit in the side of each fig and stuffed it with a small piece of blue cheese. Then I placed the stuffed figs on a small square of puff pastry and wrapped them. I also placed them on the greased sheet.

I baked both for 12 minutes at 400 degrees.

Yet another way to enjoy fresh figs!

Until next time… Release YOUR Bon Vivant and Savor Your Life!
