  • Preheat oven to 350°. Cut figs in half lengthwise. Place 1 cheese piece and 1 pecan half on cut side of each fig half. Wrap 1 bacon piece around each fig, and secure with a wooden pick. Place on a wire rack in a 15- x 10-inch jelly-roll pan.

  • Bake at 350° for 6 to 8 minutes or until bacon is crisp and browned.
