Ingredients

  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg
  • 12 dried figs, stems removed
  • 2 ounces chèvre, such as Montchèvre Goat Cheese with Honey
  • 4 ounces prosciutto
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Toothpicks

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400° F.
  • Unfold the puff pastry sheet. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the puff pastry just enough to have it be 1/4" thick. Cut out 3" rounds, and place the rounds on a parchment paper lined sheet. Lightly beat the egg in small dish with 1 tablespoon of water. Brush the dough circles with egg wash. Bake at 400° for about 15 minutes. Tops will be browned and rounds will be really puffed up. Remove from oven. Once the puffs have cooled slightly separate each into two halves. Allow them to cool completely.
  • Remove stems from figs. Slice prosciutto into long strips, about 1 inch to 1-1/2 inches wide. Wrap a strip of prosciutto around and around a fig; repeat until all 12 figs have been wrapped.
  • Place about 1 teaspoon of chèvre onto a puff pastry half. Sprinkle a tiny pinch of salt over the cheese, then top it with a prosciutto-wrapped fig. Place the other puff pastry half on top and spear it through with a toothpick. Place it on a serving platter. Repeat with the remaining puff pastry circles, cheese and figs. Serve the bites immediately.
