As we dive into fall, and the season of dinner parties, I am always looking for easy appetizers to make that will cause our guests to stop and notice (and eat!). These stuffed figs that Lisa created for us have become a great go-to in our party prep rotation. I’ve started keeping the ingredients on hand as an easy snack to whip out for after school guests – that is, the ones that are over 4 feet tall.

To make the stuffed goat cheese and pistachio figs you’ll need: Fresh figs (halved), Goat cheese, Pistachios (finely chopped), black pepper to taste, 2 tablespoons of honey, 4 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar – preferably fig balsamic vinegar

Start by placing the fig halves on a serving platter and lightly pressing about 1 teaspoon of goat cheese into the center. Sprinkle pistachios and pepper. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together honey and balsamic vinegar. Drizzle the mixture over your figs. Serve and Enjoy!
