Cheesecake Apple Fig Crostata with Bourbon Pomegranate Sauce

Products Used

Ingredients

    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 375°F, making sure the rack is in middle of oven.
    2. While oven is preheating, mix together cream cheese, egg, 1/3 cup sugar, bourbon and salt until completely smooth.
    3. Roll out pie crust to about 15 inches diameter. Spread cream cheese filling in the center of  crust to make a 12 inch circle.
    4. Toss apples with 1/4 cup sugar then place in a neat pattern to cover cheese filling. Once you have used up all of apples, top with fig slices. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup sugar.
    5. Fold edges of crust in. It will cover part of filling but not all.
    6. Lightly brush crust with cream or milk. Bake for 45-50 minutes on a large baking sheet until crust is golden brown.
    7. While crostata is baking, prepare Bourbon Pomegranate Sauce. Combine all ingredients in a heavy bottomed pot. Bring to a hard simmer. Simmer on medium low heat until reduced to half and thick like syrup.
    8. Remove from heat and cool.
    9. Drizzle warm crostata with Bourbon Pomegranate Sauce before serving.
