I wanted to share this recipe with you today.
I have made variations of it, in Fall, for the last several years.
The original recipe I tried had me making this as a full dish in which you cut pieces off.
As the years went on, I modified it but really you can make this any way you want. The key to this recipe are the flavors melding together.
I make it now for my mom. She always brings it up every year. She loves the flavors and I LOVE making it for her. As you may know feeding people is the way I show my love sometimes- it is the Italian Girl in me!
1 box puff pastry
1 jar fig preserves
1 8 oz log of goat cheese
Honey for drizzling
Optional: Dried or fresh figs for garnish/extra flavor
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper/foil and spray with Pam
Defrost your puff pastry
Roll it out and cut it in squares (this step can be changed if you want to make one large pastry- just don't cut it in squares)
Put a dollop of fig preserves in each square
Top the fig preserves with a bite of goat cheese
Pinch the pastry to make little pouches and make sure the ends touch so all that goodness stays inside the little bundles
If you want to add fresh/dried figs, sprinkle some across the sheet
Brush the pastry pouches with egg wash
Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown
When you take these little beauties out of the oven, drizzle them with honey immediately
Serve and Enjoy!
They are the perfect little appetizer for Fall or anytime but they truly taste like Fall to me!
(Yes they go very well with LaMarca of course)
