I was so skeptical to try these, mom use to make them years ago. Such a simple appetizer and I never tired them. I was missing out these are addicting and much better than I ever dreamed. What ever took me so long is beyond me... If you love figs and goat cheese, this will be a winner for you too!
12 Dried or Fresh Figs
(Fresh is best Black mission figs or Brown Turkish) Shown are Dried Kalamatta
8 ounces Soft Goat cheese or Gorgonzola at room temperature
High quality Balsamic vinegar
Heat oven to 350 degree
Slice the figs in half lengthwise in half exposing the fig seeds, removing the stem and place on some parchment paper on a cookie sheet or use a ceramic style dish, lightly oil sprayed. Press down in the middle of each fig. Drizzle some balsamic vinegar, just a few drops each and a small grind of sea salt on top.
