I stuffed figs with cream cheese and wrapped them in bacon and spices for an addictive flavor combo that’s sweet, salty and delicious. —Shelly Bevington, Hermiston, Oregon

  • 12 bacon strips
  • 24 dried figs
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa chile blend powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Cut bacon strips in half crosswise. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until partially cooked but not crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain.
  2. Cut a lengthwise slit down the center of each fig; fill with 1/2 teaspoon cream cheese. In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, chile blend powder and cinnamon. Dip one side of each bacon piece in brown sugar mixture; wrap each fig with a bacon piece, sugar side out. Secure with a toothpick.
  3. Transfer to a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake 12-15 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Yield: 2 dozen.
Editor's Note: The following ingredients may be substituted for 2 tablespoons cocoa chile blend powder: 2 teaspoons sugar, 2 teaspoons baking cocoa, 2 teaspoons chili powder and 1/2 teaspoon paprika.
