Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
step 2
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl using a hand mixer, combine the Goat Cheese (1 cup), Cream Cheese (4 Tbsp), Fresh Rosemary (1 tsp), Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1/4 tsp), and Kosher Salt (1/2 tsp). Beat for 2 minutes on medium-high speed, until smooth and lightly whipped.
step 3
Transfer to 7 or 8-inch diameter ovenproof skillet or shallow baking dish. Bake for 25-30 minutes until puffed and lightly browed around the edges.
step 4
Meanwhile, remove the hard stems from the Dried Calimyrna Fig (1 cup) and cut them into quarters.
step 5
Combine the figs, Honey (1 Tbsp), Balsamic Vinegar (1 Tbsp), and Oranges (3 Tbsp) juice in a small saucepan. The figs should fit snugly in one layer.
step 6
Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer until the liquid has reduced to a thick glaze, about 8-10 minutes.
step 7
Carefully spoon the figs and any remaining liquid onto the center of the goat cheese. Sprinkle the Shelled Pistachios Roasted & Salted (1 Tbsp) over the figs, drizzle the cheese generously with honey.
step 8
Serve hot directly from the baking dish with Pita Chips (1 pckg). Enjoy!
