Did these with a lavender infused honey and a splash of balsamic to finish tonight - so delicious!

We used gorgonzola instead of goat cheese and it was delicious. Easy, elegant recipe!

Just seeing this now--how did I miss it all this time? It looks fabulous, and figs are my favorite. Too bad it's winter now and not a fresh fig in sight. Sigh...

This is a fantastic recipe! I will certainly try it! One question: can we add the prosciutto after baking so it stays raw?

yes! however the result will be mellower, since baking the prosciutto amplifies its saltiness.
