4 oz blue cheese (Maytag works well) room temp

8 to 10 figs, stemmed and cut in half lengthwise
1/2 teas minced fresh thyme
1 teas extra virgin olive oil

Preheat oven to 375. Roll pastry out on a floured surface into a 10.5 inch diameter circle, about 1/4 inch thick. Transfer to 9 in. tart pan w/ removable bottom even with rim. Bake crust for 5-7 min. to ensure it doesn't get soggy. Remove.
Combine cheese, half/half and pepper in a bowl.Mash with a fork. Spread evenly in pastry. Arrange figs over cheese, alternating cut side up and cut side down. Sprinkle with thyme and olive oil.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until crust is lightly golden and figs are plumped and glistening. Transfer to a rack and let stand for 10 to 15 minutes. Serve warm, garnish with proscuitto.
