Cooking Instructions

HIDE 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 (10 ounce), Cream Cheese (2 ounce), Fresh Rosemary (1 teaspoon), Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1/4 teaspoon), and Kosher Salt (1/2 teaspoon). 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 tablespoon), Balsamic Vinegar (1 tablespoon), and Orange (3 tablespoon) 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 tablespoon) over the figs, drizzle the cheese generously with honey.
Step 8
Serve hot directly from the baking dish with Pita Chips (1 package). Enjoy!
