Proscuitto Wrapped Figs

This recipe is so quick it would be a shame to waste a lot of time explaining it.  That and I have sick children to tend to and work to catch up on from vacation... get out your pens... ready?

Get some fresh figs, green or black, or whatever floats your boat.

Cut figs into halves or quarters (I did quarters even though these are still halves at this point).  And yes that is a steak knife and my husband already picks on me about using it for many things.

Take a piece of prosciutto (the kind of Italy don't go cheap here as there isn't much to hide the cheapness and Italian prosciutto is worth the little extra) and fold in half the long way, now cut that into thirds.  Wrap a piece around each fig, they kind of self stick but if not use a toothpick to anchor them.

Bake at 350 for 10 minutes or until the prosciutto starts to crisp.  Top with a sprinkle of good balsamic vinegar and serve immediately.  These were a shockingly big hit and couldn't be easier if the figs did a little dance and wrapped themselves.
