  • ½ (17.3 ounce) package frozen puff pastry (such as Pepperidge Farm®), thawed

  • ½ (5.2 ounce) package onion and herbs spreadable cheese (such as Caramelized Onion & Herbs Boursin® cheese)

  • ¼ cup fig preserves

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Place the puff pastry sheet on a lightly-floured work surface and roll out to a 10x10 inch square. Using a 2-inch biscuit or cookie cutter, cut 16 rounds out of the dough

  3. Transfer the pastry rounds to the baking sheet, and using your thumb, firmly press down into the center of each of each; this step is important. Fill each indentation with about 1/2 teaspoon of the cheese.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until flaky and golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes.

  5. Meanwhile, spoon fig preserves into a small bowl and heat in the microwave until preserves are softened and starting to melt, about 1 minute.

  6. Remove baking sheet from oven and allow to slightly cool for 2 minutes. Spoon some of the melted fig preserves on the top and garnish with a sprinkle of chopped thyme.

Cook's Note:

Feel free to use another flavor of Boursin® and preserves to suit your taste. This combination is just one that we like. You also could substitute goat cheese for the Boursin® or even try one of the flavored whipped cream cheese spreads.
