Finally, fresh figs are here. Every year around the end of August I patiently stalk the shelves of every grocery store for the first figs of the season. Usually, Trader Joes is the first to get them and I always scoop up a box without hesitation. We all know that you have to pair fresh figs with salty prosciutto and I’m always looking for new ways to do that. These Fig, Prosciutto and Gruyère Purses are what came from a look through my freezer to see what I could use up. I had a few sheets of puff pastry that needed to be used, so this is what you get. They’re flaky, sweet, salty and buttery. Perfect for a simple appetizer that everyone will love. Enjoy!
