Salty-tangy blue cheese pairs beautifully with sweet fig jam in these easy appetizers, which are perfect for a holiday party. The optional minced chives add a nice pop of color, but these are just as tasty without herbs. Keep the ingredients on hand and you can whip these up for impromptu holiday cocktail parties.

  • 1 refrigerated pie crust ( ½ of a 14-ounce package; see Tip)
  • ¼ cup fig jam
  • ¼ cup crumbled blue cheese
  • Minced fresh chives (optional)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Lightly coat a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Unroll pie crust onto a clean surface. Roll the dough into a circle about 12 inches in diameter. Cut 24 2-inch circles out of the dough with a biscuit cutter, rerolling the scraps if needed. Place the dough circles in the prepared muffin cups, gently pressing the dough into the bottom and sides. Prick the dough with a fork. Bake until lightly browned, 5 to 6 minutes.
  3. Add ½ teaspoon fig jam to each cup, then top with ½ teaspoon crumbled cheese. Bake until hot, 3 to 5 minutes more. Let cool for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with chives, if using.
  • Tip: Look for prerolled pie dough (usually a package of 2 crusts) in the refrigerated case at the grocery store. If you have time and enjoy making pastry, you can make your own crust.
  • Equipment: Mini muffin tin (24 cups); 2-inch biscuit cutter

I made these with Vermont's Bayley Hazen Blue and they were a hit.
