1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 fresh fig, sliced

2 tablespoons goat cheese

1 tablespoon mascarpone cheese

2 prepared puff pastry shells

1/4 teaspoon honey

Simmer until the vinegar is reduced and syrupy, 1 to 2 minutes more. In a small bowl, stir together the goat and mascarpone cheeses. Spoon the cheese mixture into the pastry shells, top with a drizzle of honey, a sliced fig, and a drizzle of balsamic reduction. Chop up the dried apricots and set on the side of the pastry shells on the plate.
