This gluten-free figs in a blanket recipe takes classic pigs in a blanket to a whole new level. You’ll love this sweet and savory snack!



  • 1 package of GeeFree Puff Pastry Dough
  • gluten-free flour for dusting
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (less or more depending on your desired spice level)
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup water
  • 24 Mission figs, dried (medium or large), stems trimmed, halved
  • 7 oz goat cheese, plain or herbed
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten for egg wash
  • sesame seeds or poppy seeds for topping (optional)


  1. Bring dough to room temperature. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Make figs first. Stir vinegar, honey, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper, and water in a medium sauce pan. Add figs and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, bring to a simmer, and cook, stirring occasionally, until figs are softened, liquid has almost evaporated, and it is a syrupy consistency, approximately 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Dust the countertop with gluten-free flour. Take puff pastry dough and roll it out to approximately 1/8-inch thick. Cut dough into 2 1/2 x 1-inch pieces, and brush the ends with egg wash.
  4. Take one fig and about 1/2 teaspoon of goat cheese, place them at the bottom, and roll. Place seam side down on top of a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Brush with egg wash, and sprinkle with poppy seeds or sesame seeds.
  5. Bake for approximately 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.

You can freeze and reheat as needed. Heat oven to 375°F and bake until internal temp of 165°F is reached, approximately 15 to 20 minutes.

Makes 25-35 pieces
