Here is another appetizer spoon recipe I made last week when having friends over. I really like this one because I’m sure it has plenty of great variations. I only had dried fig and raisin; next time I’ll try with dried apricot . The goat cheese I used is called ‘Crottin de Chavignol‘. Its a perfect cheese for this recipe because of its soft texture. The goat cheese you’ll choose for these appetizer spoons shouldn’t be too creamy so it doesn’t make a cheese paste when you dice it. Other than that I’m sure any other medium strengh goat cheese will do the job.
Preparation time: 10 mn
Ingredients (for 10 spoons)
3 1/2 oz (100 g) of goat cheese
2 dried figs
1 tablespoon of small chive

2/ Rinse and chop small chives.
3/ In a bowl blend cheese, small chives, walnut oil, salt and pepper. Cover and set aside for at least 30 mn.
4/ Cut the fig’s hard part on top and slice it.
5/ Fill spoons with cheese and top with raisins and dried fig slices.
