Fig and Bleu Cheese Appetizer Tarts

Crescent rolls make easy work of these party appetizers filled with a delicious fig-orange mixture.


16 appetizers


3 ounces 1/3-less-fat cream cheese (Neufchâtel; from 8 ounce package), room temperature
2/3 cup crumbled bleu cheese (3 ounces)
1/4 cup Smucker's® Sweet Orange Marmalade
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
16 dried Mission figs, coarsely chopped (1 cup)
1 (12 ounce) can Pillsbury® Big & Flaky refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1/2 cup chopped pecans


Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). In small bowl, mix cream cheese and bleu cheese with fork until well blended; set aside.

In 1-quart saucepan, stir marmalade and vinegar over low heat until mixed; stir in figs. Cook over low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until figs are softened. Remove from heat.

Remove crescent dough from package, but do not unroll. Cut roll of dough into 16 slices. On 2 ungreased baking sheets, place slices 2 inches apart. Press center of each slice to make indentation, 1 1/2 inches in diameter.

Place 1 heaping teaspoon cheese mixture into each well. Top cheese with about 1 tablespoon fig mixture and 1 1/2 teaspoon pecans.

Bake for 15 to 19 minutes or golden brown. Remove from baking sheets to wire cooling rack; cool 10 minutes. Serve warm.
