Party and lifestyle expert Mary Giuliani knows all good dinner parties start with appetizers. That's why she's sharing three twists on the always popular pigs in a blanket. Each is super tasty and fun and your guests will love them as much as the traditional version! Here, she wraps pieces of store-bought puff pastry around figs, Manchego cheese and honey and pairs the baked blankets with more honey for dipping.

Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Gently pull a square of puff pastry into a rectangle. Brush the top inch or so with honey. Place a fig half on the honey and top with a piece of Manchego cheese. Roll into a blanket, then place on a baking sheet. Make 11 more blankets the same way.
In a small pot, melt the butter with the rosemary. Brush each blanket with the rosemary butter. Bake for 25 minutes or until the puff pastry is golden brown. Serve with the remaining honey.
