TT Tip: If you don't have leftover fig jam from the When Figs Fly cocktail, substitute your favorite marmalade or a grape-must jam.
Fig and Blue Cheese Bites
Recipe from the Tasting Table Test Kitchen
Yield: 24 bites
Cook Time: 10 minutes
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
¼ cup fig jam
¼ cup crumbly blue cheese (such as Maytag)
1 small bunch fresh chives, cut into 2-inch lengths
1. Preheat the oven to 400°. Use a knife or pastry cutter to divide the pastry into twenty-four 2-inch-long rectangles. Place the pastry rectangles on a parchment-lined baking sheet, taking care not to overlap the pieces. Use a fork to poke holes in the center of each rectangle.
2. Spread ½ teaspoon of the fig jam in the center of each rectangle. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake until the puff is golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and top each pastry with a few small knobs of blue cheese. Top with 1 to 2 chive pieces and serve warm.
