6 Fresh figs
2 Oz. Gorgonzola blue cheese, cut into four cubes

NOTE: You can buy premade puff pastry at every grocery store in the freezer section. Typically, a box has two sheets of dough. You’ll only be using one for this recipe so keep the other completely covered and frozen until ready to use. You can use any blue cheese you like (you might even want to try other cheeses like brie or camembert). While this is the perfect appetizer to start an elegant meal, it also makes a great lunch when served with a side salad.
You can prepare these several hours before your guests arrive. Just keep in the refrigerator. Do take the baking sheet out of the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before baking so it comes to room temperature. Enjoy.
