Fig, prosciutto, almond

Talk about a fast way to get a perfect bite. Sweet and salty morsels with a crisp prosciutto shell are just the thing to kick off a dinner party or to snack on while watching a game.

With only a 10-minute cooktime, the speed of your assembly of the bites is the only thing that can slow you down. 

You can make these a day ahead of time and store them in the fridge before baking off. 

What you need

6-8 pieces of prosciutto

1 4oz container marcona almonds, like Trader Joe's rosemary marcona almonds

1 8oz black mission figs

How to do it

Preheat oven to 375-degrees F. 

While the oven preheats, take one piece of prosciutto and slice it long-ways into 6 pieces. Repeat with the other slices of prosciutto.

Next, collect half as many black figs as you have slivers of prosciutto. Slice the figs in half, chopping off the stem if it's included in your figs. 

To assemble, press a marcona almond into the seedy meat of a fig half, then, take a prosciutto sliver and roll around the almond-stuffed fig half. 

To finish, place the bites onto a baking sheet, and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the prosciutto begins to crisp and lightly brown.
