Stuffed Roquefort Figs

I have prepared this hors d’oeuvres with several

combinations of nuts and both dried and fresh figs.

If you have difficulty finding fresh figs, you may

purchase the dried figs and soak them overnight in

orange juice or red wine before halving them. Try

rolling the figs in powdered sugar or sprinkling

with grated chocolate. All good! This version is my

favorite.

1 dozen fresh figs, stemmed and halved

1/2 cup of cream cheese

1/2 cup of Roquefort cheese

24 pecan halves, toasted and salted

balsamic vinegar

Stir cheeses together and make an indention in

each fig with a teaspoon. Fill with the cheese and

top each with half a pecan. Drizzle with balsamic

vinegar, and serve.
