Goat Cheese & Fig Finger Sandwich

My kid is a big fan of cream cheese and jelly sandwiches so I had the bright idea of expanding his palette by making something that looks and tastes similar but is a bit more sophisticated.  I broke out the heart cookie cutter to add some intrigue. The experiment started out great. He tried goat cheese for the first time and really loved it.

We had a great time making the sandwich and even though we made it on my kids favorite kind of bread – cinnamon raisin swirl – the fig spread was not a hit. I happened to love it and at a few for my lunch! Next up, goat cheese and strawberry jam. Now for the recipe…

    What a cute (and delicious!) sandwich! I am amazed & impressed that your son liked the goat cheese – it is such an acquired taste. In fact, my husband has just come around to developing a taste for it ;).
