Higos Con Miel Y Queso (Figs With Honey And Cheese)

For a lighter take on datiles con beicon, stuff a fig instead, serving it fresh and at room temperature.

Makes 16 servings

16 Mission figs

8 teaspoons soft goat cheese

1/4 cup basil, cut in thin strips, chiffonade

Honey

16 strips of Serrano ham cut into 4-inch pieces (may substitute prosciutto)

Cut the stems off each fig and slice in half lengthwise. Cut a small indent in the middle. Place 1/2 teaspoon of soft goat cheese in the center. Place 2 or 3 strips of basil and a dollop of honey on top of the goat cheese. Wrap the fig in one layer of ham. Skewer with a toothpick to hold it together. Serve at room temperature.
