    evelyn/athens's Note:

    Figs stuffed with mascarpone cheese are a classic late-summer dessert in Italy. If you can't find mascarpone, substitute with cream cheese.

      I used for this recipe the last figs form the garden...in November!
      If the fall is mild, we get the real figs only now and not like in Greece in August.
      These figs were small (only one inch sized), very sweet and dry.
      For the cream I used "Philadelphia balance" adding sugar and amaretto dirctly in the cream.
      Topped with pinenuts and cinnamon were delicious. Like small "truffles" and real jewels.
      Evelyn, thanks a lot for this dream recipe!

      Summer bliss! I used crushed amarettis for the pine nuts and a tad more sugar.

      Between recommendations from Evelyn and Toolie, I had to try these. Imagaine a table with a tray of Mrs. G's Cherries with Sour cream and Brown sugar, Bowls Ev's Strawberries and melon in Marsala, and a tray of these--figs and apricots with mascarpone and amaretto--summer dessert heaven!
