Blue Cheese and Fig Appetizers

Quick, easy and sure to impress. Once the pastry thaws, it takes just about 30 minutes and four ingredients to make these scrumptious appetizers. (alternately use Brie and Pear)


  • ½ pkg Filo Pastry Thawed
  • 150 gr Blue Cheese
  • 5 tbsp Fig Jam
  • Melted Butter


Heat the oven to 400°F.

Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface.  Cut the Filo into 6cm squares. Lightly butter each square and alternately stack 3 squares on top of each other.  Press the squares into 36 (1 3/4-inch) mini muffin-pan cups.
Bake for 10 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.

Place 1 piece of blue cheese into each pastry cup and top with about 1/4 teaspoon jam. Bake for 5 minutes or until the filling is hot.  Let the pastries cool in the pan on wire racks for 10 minutes.
