Stuffed Figs

No real recipe here – just a sweet and savory bite of figs, mascarpone and prosciutto dipped in chopped walnuts. It takes only minutes to prepare and will have your guests popping them by the handful. I recently attended a reception of Italian furnishings at a nearby store and these were among the appetizers served. I’ve since made them a couple of times and the plate gets emptied quicker than you can say Calamyrna. Dried figs are used here, which give a really intense figgy flavor and a chewy contrast to the creamy mascarponse cheese. If you want to try something similar using fresh figs, check out Marie’s post where she grills fresh figs, brie cheese and prosciutto.

Then take each half and cut it in half again. Spread a spoonful of mascarpone on one of the pieces, press another piece against it and roll in prosciutto. Dip the ends in chopped walnuts.

  1. Fresh figs are funny, sometimes I buy them and they don't taste sweet at all even though they look nice and ripe. This is a sure thing for that nice figgy flavor, I just might give these a try this weekend, they sound perfect!

  2. I have Saturday's appetizer. So happy it can be done with dried figs. Fresh figs are hard to come by in MN. I always love figs and prosicutto together.
