Baked Fig with Boursin Frosting

This idea came to me like a flash in the night! My 5 year old daughter had been home from school sick, and we were talking about what to eat for dinner, when I asked her if she wanted me to save the last two figs. She said yes, but that she wanted them hot. Well, I had had a box of Boursin Shallot and Chive soft cheese in the fridge for what seemed like forever(6-8 months) and all of a sudden it just fell into place.

You will need :

 1~ 5.2 oz box of Boursin Shallot and Chive Cheese

 1~8 oz container Creme Fraiche

 2-3 oz local honey

 2-3 tablespoons Mango Fruit Pulp Vinager

Heres how to make the frosting

Add a ½ container of creme fraiche, a long squeeze of honey, and a smidgen of the Mango Pulp vinegar and stir with whisk to combine, and voila! We have Boursin Frosting! If you would like to, you can use the rest of the creme for a smooth and velvety texture. Figs are then quartered with a pairing knife,then got a spoon full of frosting, and and finished by wrapping  with a piece of stretched out thick bacon, and sat on top of a bed of brown sugar. Once the pot was filled(4)  I sprinkled a bit more brown sugar on top and added an extra bit of frosting and covered. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes, until bubbly and the bacon has started to render. Uncover and let brown until service.  Plate with a large dollop of frosting and some of the pan juices.
