Figgy cheesy appy

Image

I like this appetizer because it’s a bit different, extremely easy and leftovers are really good straight from the fridge while you impatiently wait for the tea to steep the next morning…what?

I’ll come right out and admit that these are made with store-bought mini-pastry shells, but I have made them before with puff pastry just cut into little squares and it’s just as easy, looks super-cute and then they look more like the homemade appetizers that they are. These are so simple that it hardly qualifies as a recipe but here you go:

Ingredients:

One box of tart shells or frozen puff pastry

your favourite cheese — I used Havarti but brie would be lovely as would goat cheese

dried figs

walnuts — my local store has some red walnuts so I used those but regular would be fine

honey

butter

Preparation: chop up your cheese, figs and walnuts and fill each pastry shell. Drizzle each with honey and add a tiny knob of butter to each. If you’re feeling extra fancy, add a few grains of coarse salt too. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown. Devour with friends, family and your festive beverage of choice. Eat leftovers the next morning while still in your pajamas and pre-coffee.
