Figs must be in season in California right now because I see them all over. I had a mini fig tart last week from a local bakery and it was delicious. It did not have any creme. Just a pastry shell, very small figs, quartered with a sugary glazing on top. Simple and delicious. I'm trying to find a recipe that duplicates it. I found this recipe on and want to save it here because this is where I keep my recipes.

A soupy mess. Tasty. But a soupy mess nonetheless.
