Fig & Goat Cheese Puff Pastry Roll


Buttery puff pastry is a tasty shortcut ingredient that can be used in many delicious ways. Here we roll out a pastry sheet and cover it with fig jam and crumbled goat cheese, then roll it up into a log and bake it. The end result is a sweet-and-savory appetizer that looks and tastes impressive, especially considering it has just three ingredients.

Active Time:
10 mins
Total Time:
55 mins


  • 1 frozen puff pastry, thawed

  • 6 tablespoons fig jam

  • 1 (4-ounce) log goat cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Stack 2 large baking sheets on top of each other (this will help keep the bottom from burning) and line with parchment paper. Lay puff pastry on another sheet of parchment and roll it out to about 12 inches. Evenly spread jam over the pastry, leaving ½ inch of 1 edge bare for sealing. Crumble goat cheese on top of the jam. Brush the bare edge with water to help it stick. Starting at the opposite edge, roll the pastry into a log; place seam-side down on a small cutting board and freeze until firm enough to slice, 20 to 30 minutes.

  2. Using a sharp knife, cut the log into 10 pieces. Transfer the slices to the prepared baking sheet. Bake until golden brown on the edges, 23 to 25 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
