How to Make It

Step 1

Stir the figs, water and 2 tablespoons honey in a medium bowl.  Let stand for 1 hour.  Drain the figs well in a colander.  Coarsely chop the figs.

Step 2

Heat the oven to 375°F. Stir the pancetta, chopped figs, rosemary, cheese and remaining honey in a medium bowl.

Step 3

Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Cut the pastry sheet into 3 (2 1/2-inch wide) strips. Discard the remaining pastry. Cut each pastry strip into 4 (2 1/2-inch) squares, making 12 in all. Press the pastry squares into 12 (1 3/4-inch) mini muffin-pan cups. Spoon 1 1/2 tablespoons pancetta mixture into each pastry square.

Step 4

Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Remove the pastries from the pan and let cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Garnish with additional fresh rosemary, if desired.

Recipe Tips

  • Time-Saving: Fresh figs are in season in the fall and the spring.  You can substitute 6 chopped fresh figs, stems removed, for the Honeyed Figs.  Stir in with the pancetta, cheese and honey as directed in the first step.

    easy to make filling

    i used way too many figs. next time i'll measure them out and only use 1/3 cup finely chopped fig bits. I had to increase the recipe to allow for the extra figs. hopefully the unused portion will freeze to use at Xmas.

    Honeyed Fig, Pancetta & Blue Cheese Tartlets

    I had too much filling and I believe there was too much blue cheese. Next time I make this, I will reduce the amount of cheese to 1/4 cup so it doesn't overpower the flavors of the pancetta and figs.
