      This fig dessert was just fantastic. The figs were very aromatic in the citrusy syrup. Served with a small dollop of greek yoghurt on the side.

      Yum! These were memorable. DH loves fresh fruit desserts and said this is one of the best he's had. I have to agree. I used the orange blossom water. Thanks for sharing this great recipe.
