- 3 ozs Cremont Cheese
- 12 thin crackers, such as 34 Degree Crisps
- 2 dried figs, cut into pieces 1/2 inch or smaller
- Set out the crackers. Scoop about 1 tsp of the cheese on each cracker, then spread it out with a knife to cover the crackers.
- Top each Cremont Cheese Cracker with a piece of the fig. Serve and enjoy with a dry sparkling wine.
- Cremont Cheese is a double-cream aged cow and goat milk from Vermont Creamery. You could try this recipe with other creamy cheeses such as Brie. Stay away from soft cheese with a strong taste, like Camembert…at least for this recipe and pairing!
- You want to find a very thin cracker to use here to let the cheese and fig taste shine!
- You could substitute a fig jam for the dried fig if you like. Just use a little dollop of jam on each piece of cheese.
- The tip you may have seen about leaving cheeses out for an hour before serving applies more to hard cheeses than soft! Keep the Cremont cheese in the fridge until you are ready to serve.
