Recipe: Parmesan Créme and Fig Canapés

Last weekend we had some friends over for wine and nibbles. These canapés were a huge hit with everybody, and so easy to make!

  • 1 bag of grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tub of philadelphia cream cheese
  • half a loaf of dark rye bread
  • 4-5 figs
  • salt and pepper
Mix the cream cheese and grated parmesan in a bowl. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. Cut the bread into small squares. With a small spoon or knife, spread the parmesan créme on top of each bread square, then add a piece of fig. Done!

We also enjoyed this cheese board, and I got the opportunity to use my beautiful serving plate for the first time! It was an engagement gift from my parents, it's designed by Klaus Haapaniemi for Iittala.

Oh yum, and very sophisticated! When I ever invite my friends over for wine it's always accompanied by a bag of crisps or something. I'd love to give these a go sometime though. xo

Yes I agree, they're very hard to find sometimes. You could substitue with a grape or piece of pear perhaps? Something to give a bit of sweetness basically :)
