Figs with Honeyed Goat Cheese

We went to Costco yesterday and got a huge package of figs, which are in season.  I had just found this recipe at The Paleo Project and wanted to give it a try.  I made a few for a late-night treat last night.  Then today I made a few more for a post-church treat.  I have a feeling I’ll be making more tomorrow as a Labor Day treat.  And the next day as a Tuesday treat.  Then I might need to go buy some more figs.

(Although the recipe calls for black mission figs, I used the green kind, and they’re fantastic.)
