Fig and Blue Cheese Tart with Honey, Balsamic, and Rosemary


Figs and cheese have long been a top contender for the champion dairy-fruit combo (I don’t want to hurt the feelings of quince paste, but there ya go). So if you’re feeling exhausted from all this autumnal leaf-peeping goin’ on (and want to verify how figs + cheese = awesomesauce), grab some pastry dough from your local grocer and make this (fairly simple) Fig and Blue Cheese Tart!

The figs can be firm or soft or a combination of both. Let go. It’s okay for this tart to be a bit of a mess. You can skip the cheese. Or add pine nuts. Maybe drape pancetta or prosciutto over the figs. I strongly advise that you serve this tart with a crisp green salad drenched in a powerful vinaigrette.
