Blue Cheese and Fig Savories blue cheese savories

I needed to put together a few cheese-filled baked goods for a work event and as I’ve been on a bit of a scone kick recently I started thinking about doing something different this time. My first thought was a savory cookie, and I came up with a habanero-cheddar-apple chutney cookie that I just love (more on that another day). Not everyone can stand the heat of habanero peppers, so I’ve got a few other items in the mix to round out the selection.

Then I remembered that not everyone shares my unfortunate blue cheese allergy, and decided I also needed a recipe using blue cheese. As I can’t use my own palate as a guide I did a quick search to see if there was such a thing already out there.

There is! I got lucky and found a great recipe for blue cheese and fig savories from P.C. Magness at Even though I was unable to try them myself, I can honestly say that everyone else enjoyed them immensely. They were a huge hit. You should definitely check out P.C.’s website, she’s been blogging for several years and has hundreds and hundreds of great recipes.
