2-11 oz. goat cheese logs
1 cup dried mission figs (approx. 14), diced
1/4 cup dry sherry
1/8 cup olive oil
2 large Spanish onions, cut in half, thinly sliced
1 tbsp. sugar
7 to 10 garlic cloves, crushed
3 sprigs fresh rosemary or 1 tsp. dried
2 tsp. salt
fresh ground black pepper
2 sliced baguettes, for dipping
2 sliced apples or pears, for dipping

Crumble the goat cheese evenly into an oven safe dish; set aside. In a saucepan, combine the figs and sherry with enough water to barely cover the figs. Place the mixture over high heat; bring to a boil. Cover and remove from the heat. Let rest until figs are plump. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, rosemary, sugar, salt and pepper; stirring often until caramelized. Using a slotted spoon, remove the plumped figs from the saucepan, leaving behind any liquid. Stir figs into caramelized onion mixture and spoon over goat cheese. Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 20 minutes or until the edges begin to bubble. Serve with sliced bread or sliced pears and apples.
