Goat Cheese Stuffed Figs with Walnuts and Honey

Fresh figs are by far my favorite summer fruit. They’re also very sensitive.They bruise easily and have a very short shelf life so they’re often gone as soon as they make their summer debut. So get your hands on some fresh figs and make this simple and tasty summer appetizer (or dessert!)
