Prep time
Total time
Cuisine: Appetizers, Antipasti & Wonderful Things to Nibble On
Serves: 4
  • 12 black or Mission Figs
  • 3 ounces of Gorgonzola Dolce
  • 12 large walnut pieces, lightly toasted
  • Assorted fig leaves for lining the platter
  1. Clean the figs with a damp paper towel, pat dry. Trim the top with a paring knife to remove the tough portion where the fig was attached to the tree. Inspect the fig and possible trim the base if it seems tough. Depending upon the shape, this may also be necessary to stabilize the fig for serving.
  2. Again using a pairing knife, cut a cross in the top of the fig going about halfway down. Insert a piece of toasted walnut first, followed by a bit of the Gorgonzola Dolce. Partially close the top of the fig gently, arrange on a serving platter over some fig leaves and present with your favorite wine or cocktail
