Roasted Figs Blue Cheese & Walnut Spread

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes


  • About 4 cups fresh figs stems removed and sliced in half lengthwise
  • 2 tablespoons honey divided
  • 1 large sprig fresh rosemary
  • 5 ounces blue cheese
  • 8 ounces Greek cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts toasted


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
  • Spread the fig halves in a single layer in a baking dish, and drizzle with honey. Sprinkle about half of the rosemary needles around the figs, and lay the remainder over the top of the figs.
  • Roast the figs for about 30 minutes, or until they are softened and just starting to brown a bit in spots. Stir once or twice while roasting to coat with the honey.
  • Let the roasted figs cool to room temperature.
  • Combine the blue cheese, cream cheese, vanilla and salt in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the chopping blade, and process until smooth.
  • Add the roasted figs and walnuts and pulse just until the figs are broken down into small pieces.
  • Serve with crackers and fruit.


Store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
