  • 16 whole almonds
  • 4 thin slices prosciutto*
  • 16 dried mission figs, trimmed

1. Place almonds in a shallow pan.

2. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes or until lightly toasted, stirring occasionally.

3. Cut each prosciutto slice lengthwise into 4 thin strips. If necessary, make a small slit in center of each fig. Stuff each fig with 1 piece of blue cheese and 1 almond. Wrap 1 prosciutto slice around each fig, pressing to seal. Toss wrapped figs with oil, pepper, and salt; arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet.
