Fresh Figs with Herbed Goat Cheese and Fresh Rosemary
If fresh figs are difficult to find, a delicious alternative would be toasts or crackers spread with preserves-fig or peach, for example. If opting for preserves, use only half the honey called for in the goat cheese mixture. Can be prepared in 45 minutes or less.
Yield: Makes 1-3/4 cups
12 ounces Montchevré Garlic & Herb goat cheese at room temperature (about 1-1/4 cups, or 3 4-oz. logs)
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves, or to taste
1 tablespoon honey
1 pound fresh figs
In a bowl whisk together all ingredients except figs until smooth and season with salt and pepper. Rosemary goat cheese may be made 1 day ahead and chilled, covered. Bring goat cheese to cool room temperature before serving.
Mound goat cheese in center of a platter. Halve figs and arrange around goat cheese for dipping.contest | figs | honey | hors d'oeuvres | rosemary
