Grilled Manchego Cheese Fig Filled Puff Pastry Drizzled with Balsamic Recipe
 
Grilled Manchego Cheese with a Fig Jam Inside Puff Pastry
Manchego cheese is a Spanish cheese that has a nice nutty flavor that lends itself well to make a dessert.  The ingredients complement the cheese perfectly.  This is a great dessert for those of us that don’t have a big sweet tooth, but want a slightly sweet ending to our meal.  
 
INGREDIENTS :
 
-1 sheet puff pastry sheets thawed
-1 large wedge of Manchego cheese
-3/4 cup of fig jam or marmalade
-Non-stick cooking spray
-Sonoma Farm 25 Year Old Aged Balsamic Vinegar for drizzling
 
TECHNIQUE
Let puff pastry dough thaw slightly and unfold.  Place puff pastry onto a baking sheet coated with non-stick cooking spray.  Cut along the two crease lines and then cut each piece into 4 pieces for a total of 12 pieces.  Spray the tops with non-stick cooking spray and bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 10 – 15 minutes until lightly golden and puffed.  Allow to cool.  Once pastry has cooled, gently pull top and bottom apart as you would a roll.  Gently spread about one tablespoon of the fig jam over all bottom pieces of the pastry and set aside.  Cut cheese into pieces about 2 inches by 2 inches and 1/4 inch in height.  Preheat a grill to low and grill on each side for about 30 seconds for a total time of one minute or until slightly melting at the edges.  Remove cheese from the grill and place directly onto each puff pastry sheet with the fig jam.  Plate and drizzle with Sonoma Farm 25 year old aged balsamic vinegar.  The best way to these is to pick them up and eat as you would a sandwich.  If you are baking the cheese, place on baking sheet coated with non-stick cooking spray and bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for about 2 minutes or until edges begin to melt.  Watch carefully so they don’t burn.  Remove cheese from baking sheet and place directly onto puff pastry with fig jam.  Plate and drizzle with Sonoma Farm aged balsamic vinegar.
