Pillsbury Original Crescent Rolls
dry red wine
Jalapeno and Honey Chevre Goats Milk Cheese
half and half
fresh ground black pepper
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F (or 350 degrees for dark or nonstick pans). Unroll Pillsbury Original Crescent Roll dough and cut into 16 squares.
Spray mini cupcake pan with non-stick cooking spray and lay square dough into mini muffin pan so the edges come up on the sides forming a cup.
Bake for 8 to 9 minutes or until golden brown.
Once you remove the pan from the oven take a small spoon and reshape the dough so you can fill with your ingredients. Remove cups from pan and cool.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
Arrange 4 thick-cut pieces of bacon on a baking pan lined with foil and then bake until crisp, about 10-12 minutes. Let bacon cool and then cut into small pieces.
In a medium saucepan stir wine and honey together.
Then add figs and bring to a boil over medium heat.
Reduce heat to simmer, then let the figs cook for about 15 minutes until tender. Remove figs from saucepan cut into small slices.
In a small bowl beat together the goat cheese and half and half until smooth.
With a small spoon put a dollop of the goat cheese mixture in the Pillsbury cup.
Then add a few dried figs and sprinkle a few pieces of bacon on top.
Garnish with a little thyme on top.
