Fifteen minutes and no cooking, and you've got this super-easy, fresh fig treat. As simple as they are to prepare, these fig bites seem so luxurious and fancy. They are great as a sophisticated cheese-for-dessert course or as a savory-meets-sweet appetizer as part of your next party spread. Figs are best late summer through early fall, but this delicious spread could also work dolloped on top of rehydrated dried figs speared with a toothpick, or even spread on prunes or ripe pear halves. A platter of these makes for a picture perfect cocktail party offering, great paired with white wine or a sparkling flute of Cava or Prosecco. Or whip up an arugula salad and toss these sweet bites on top, and you've got the perfect meal.
